Does it make any sense to use a base glaze as a liner?

I'm using a high expansion glaze with colorants.

One benefit would be the liner glaze would match the COE of the exterior glaze -- promoting better/consistent glaze fit. Is it necessary to use a base glaze as the liner, no, but it may mitigate potential fit problems.

Base glazes are just a base  without specific colorants. Liner glazes are those used for lining inside pots and as Bciske says they are made to avoid problems with COE.

I have been using liner glazes since the 60s,  before digital fire or computer programs for glazes. BTW, there wasn't much talk about toxicology back then. Barium was a favorite flux for pottery in those days because of the buttery satin surface.

Norm,

Here is a white Liner base I started using in ^6 reduction in 1980. It came from a handout from NCECA in the 70s.

I used it with a lot of different colorants in my classroom.

It works in reduction too as white.

Ger. Borate   20

Neph. Syenite                 30

Kaolin                              13.3

Whiting                         9.4

Talc           17.2                    

Silica                               10

Zircopax                         10

 

ADD :Pumpkin 5% Red Iron + 3% Rutile

Gold  3% Rutile

Lt. Blue  0.5% Cobalt Carb

sorry. Yes it works in oxidation. It is richer and warmer in reduction,
