A nice cone 6 oxidation red that I like is Reader's Digest Red
Gerstley Borate 31
Kona-4 Feldspar 20
EPK Kaolin 5
Also add: Red Iron Oxide15
Pretty Good for Texture. It goes from Brick Red to Red/Orange when thick, breaks black. Satin/Shiny. Moves – keep clearance from bottom. You can increase the texturing by spraying a little ash over it.
here's another one that I'm experimenting with
Cone: 6 Color: Candy Apple Red
Firing: Oxidation Surface: Glossy
21 Gerstley Borate
16 Nepheline Syenite
.2 Chromium Oxide (that is point 2)
5 Tin Oxide
Comments: This glaze needs three thick coats, thick. It will break white if thin and on edges. When it is applied right it will produce a very nice candy apple red that has a very waxy feel.
I think the key phrase here is "thick", very thick, thicker than thick
