I recently bought a commercial glaze from the Georgie's line of Cone 6 glazes for oxidation. The name of the glaze was Terrazo. I have fallen in love with this glaze however, the commercial glaze is quite expensive to use on a regular basis (about $15 for a pint). Does anybody have a recipe that could mimic this glaze? Thanks in advance for any help!!

Is that it?
Is it satin or matt?


Looks like a base glaze with some granular addition for speckles.
Anybody have any ideas what one could add to their glazes to make dark speckles at cone 6?

Granular Ilmenite will make those tiny dark speckles at cone 6 (not to be confused with Powdered Ilmenite).

That is it! It is actually a glossy surface to the glaze and is foodsafe! This is one my favorite glazes currently. I made a 5 piece serving set using this glaze on the inside and mayco black walnut on the rim/outside.
