Grueby Style Glaze

Recommended Posts

Hello, I would like to find recipes and methods for developing my own arts and crafts style MATTE glazes. They seem to be hard to find on the general web. Can some one supply me with a basic starter recipe, cone 6, and a path or direction I can follow in developing my own glazes...principles, tips, website, book, etc.

 

thank you very much, paul

If you go to my gallery on this site, I posted a picture and a recipe of such a glaze. I have found the matte glazes in Michael Bailey's ^6 recipes to be a good starting point.

here is the link to my gallery picture with comment.

The comment is the recipe.
