I have been trying to develop a gold with manganese and copper, however, I end up with brown. Can anybody help with a recipe?

Many thanks Ayjay, but this is the one I have been trying. I am in UK and substituted Cedar Heights Redart for Red Clay, but other than that I followed the recipe. Thanks anyway.

I use cedar heights red art clay in Reynolds Gold and my glaze comes out almost black with a gold sheen.  My bag of red art is 25 years old, the clay may be dug from a different pit now and the chemistry of the clay has slightly change.  I had that happen with a red terracotta from Laguna several years ago, horrible impurities, they ended up putting a warning lable on the box.    Denice
