Mason Vs. Ferro Stains

Recommended Posts

I'm using mason stain for the first time to create a black slip. Currently I'm at 5% with 6600 black Mason stain, and my casting body is barely gray after testing. I'm doubtful that another 5% will do the trick.


A friend recently suggested that Ferro stains have a higher saturation, that they seem to be more concentrated, and that a person generally has to use less for the desired result. Does anyone know if there's any truth to this? And what stains do you prefer and why?

It will look grey before it is fired, but it is black.

I use the 6600 @ 6-8% all the time and get a great black when it's fired.

That's what I thought, but after a bisque it's still pretty gray. Will it darken more if I test it to ^10?
