Since several of these are dry, it is best to use a pyrometer and fire to 1850 F.

 

Lizard Skin when thick it give lizard skin texture

Hines Patina dry matt

Blue Lustre blues luster with variations

Lithium Blue alkaline blue

Copper Sand one of my favorites pinks, blues. dry texture

AW- a couple of these (Copper sand in particular) have multiple recipes kicking around on the net. This will impact your results.

 

Marcia is spot on in terms of her descriptions... but (as I'm sure you're aware) the same Raku glaze can produce insanely different results... sometimes out of the same kiln run.

 

They're all good glazes though. Luck- you'll have fun!
