Woot! Trying It Out Finally!

Yesterday, 05:55 PM

Ok so today I mixed up a few batches of glaze to test! I did the Glossy Base 1 with G200hp and the wollastonite was substituted for the silica/whiting combo.

 I also did a mix of that with Tin to test out some white while I was at it. 

I tried cranberry red (in brit's book) and one with the base only with a red mason stain. (I read somewhere that it was possible to look great)

I am trying a basic shiny clear glaze (gersley borate. silica, epk) 

And finally The dark blue N501. 


So excited this week I will fire my first test tiles ever! <3 I will post my results 

I have a crappy kitchen digital scale and doing only 100 gram batches It is tricky because it doesn't do half grams so I have to play with it a bit. Time to invest in a decent scale. 


Firing Work For Somebody At Higher Cone

22 April 2015 - 10:09 AM

I have recently been asked if I could fire a piece of work for a fellow potter who has helped me out in the past.  I fire cone 5-6. The piece I am being asked to fire is cone 10.  I have a skutt 1027 and it shows cone 10 at the max temp.  Would you attempt to fire something at max temp? I was offered a shelf to fire it on just in case ...

Are there any articles or books with any of the glaze information or recipes for the work of Rose Cabat? 

Here Is What I Ordered - Never Mixed My Own Glaze Yet

18 February 2015 - 10:24 AM

Ok after reading these forums forever I finally placed my order with us pigment. ( will drive to pick it up) 

(I couldn't find talc on the website?)


This is the list I gathered from all of the discussions about starting to mix glaze 


50# G200 Feldspar

50#Ferro frit 3134

50# Epk

50# silica (325 Mesh)

50# Whiting

10# Kona F4

10# Dolomite

5# Spodumene

5# Bentonite

5# Superpax

3# Ferro frit 3124

3# ferro frit 3110


Colorants include

5# Rutile (light)

1# cobalt carbonate

5# Red iron oxide (high purity i believe is the common one?)

2# crome Oxide

2# copper carbonate


These stains looked yummy to me so I added them on my own to the list:

1 # encapsulated red stain 50779

1# pink stain 6020

1# Green stain 6263

I fire ^6 oxidation so hopefully I didn't order something that I cannot use.  Do my amounts look right to you? I am not sure if I am ordering enough cobalt carbonate because i use a lot of blue oxide wash already and hope to make my own blue wash/underglaze. 


opps I forgot to add- I already have 50# of Gersley Borate and 35# Nepheline sy 

Iron Oxides

12 February 2015 - 03:28 PM

So as you know I am still slowly building my supplies of glaze mixing materials (and gathering colorants).  I have no clue which iron oxides I should be looking for.  Is there an article or information I can read on these? I plan to mostly do mid fire, It seems these Oxides vary based on what ^ I am firing?? I feel totally clueless about this. thanks for the insight.
