So, are there recipes to make your own underglazes? I have lots of books for making glazes but they don't have recipes for underglazes. I have lots of Mason stains and clear glaze so this sounds like a fun thing to do if I knew how.
Check the handouts on engobes and underglazes and on Mason stains at Vince Pitelka's website: http://iweb.tntech.e...ndouts-info.htm
You may also find recipes in the various Robin Hopper books and other sources.
Thank you. I'm just starting back up in pottery after a few years off after a broken wrist and a move to Texas. I had been going to a local studio where we fired to cone 10 reduction. I now have my own kiln and will be firing to cone 6 oxidation. The problem is I have left over cone 10 clay that I want to fire before starting on cone 6 but I don't want to invest heavily in cone 10 glazes. I have a clear glaze that will fire from cone 5-10 so would like to do some slip work and now the idea of the underglaze is intriguing. Lots to learn - which makes it fun.
