To start I've done several iterations of my reduction firings so I don't think that's the problem.
I've been experimenting with Tom Coleman and Malcom Davis shinos for a while.
I'm not getting the orange hues I expect, more tan-pink.
It's been suggested by a reputable source not to use B-mix and move to something like Soldate 60, possibly a clay with more iron content. That said Soldate 60 doesn't show iron (?), but somethng like LB Blend does.
I'm no clay chemistry expert by and stretch, so I'm grabbing at straws here.
B-Mix has been fine for throwing small pieces, and large pieces (sand or grog).
I manage to have a waste/loss rate of about 5%.
Note: I have to buy from Laguna because I can pick up, not ship.
I'd like to find a body I can do-all with, forgiving and flexible that would work with the shinos.
I'm all ears here...
...where's the oranges...
