Beautiful examples. Thanks for the pictures and informative post!
Pic # 2. Is that a dark slip decoration ( horizontal lines), applied while leather hard, bisqued then fcs glazed? What is dark slip formula formula? I have a slip that is clay body slip (helios) with black mason and a clay body slip with manganese I will experiment with......
#3 I'm assuming there is a lot of texture in piece.? Secondly it appears to play well with other glazes?
#1. I love 266. But all the health warning posts make me afraid to buy more of it.
#2: Exactly. I'm pretty sure it's 266 in slip form but I may be forgetting the exact clay
#3 It loves texture! It breaks on anything (lettering, throwing lines) but it sometimes has to be more of a severe texture like the mug to get it to break with two glazes, depending on the combination (test!). And yes, it plays well with almost all of our glazes except for the really funky ones that don't like to play well with others.
#1 I only use 266 on rare occasions. I don't worry much about it wet but am super cautious doing anything that might create dust with it.
