If you're looking for larger leaves with strong vein lines acanthis or hydrangea would work well.

In Topic: Opinions On Pre-Mixed Dry Glazes?

27 March 2014 - 11:58 AM

I've used several brands of dry glazes. Coyote so far has been my favorite. On the down side, they are expensive. If you are interested in mixing your own I would highly recommend buying a copy of "Mastering Cone 6 Glazes." It has several good base glazes that can be easily altered. Also, Pottery Making Illustrated recently ran a piece on setting up a glaze studio. I found it very informative. If your sharing a studio with others the initial investment might be a reasonable choice. A good source for buckets is your local pizza dive. I talked to the manager and they saved buckets for me, FREE!

My first pottery instuctor told us in our first class, "if you don't like working in a kitchen, you won't like working in a studio." I think she hit the nail on the head. It's exact measuring, cleaning up and using your noodle to find new uses for items you have or can make use of.

Coyote glazes are great when applied properly. When they suggest thick application, they MEAN thick.
