make it thicker by letting some of the water evaporate.  van gilder made it to go over his other colors so it was thin as mixed but works fine if allowed to evaporate.

i think mark has a possible plan b.  it is to take each of us potters out scuba diving.  then let us each wander through his remarkable property and let us all drool.


doc weathers has a possible plan b also, it is to make very complicated tools for each of us and to sell them on a website set up by one or more of the computer folks here.


marcia can rent out her wonderful studio to each of us sequentially since she is always traveling and never home anyway.


chris can make colored clay for us so we don't have to do the hard part, just the fun.


see, there are lots of plans named b.

doc, why not try Rutile Green from bill vangilder?  i think it is also in mastering cone 6 glazes.  use the base glaze and some cobalt carb for a nice blue.  someone is asking about a commercial glaze that looks like it in a different thread about blue hare glaze.  see the picture there.


that base glaze takes many colors and they all look great.

In Topic: Where To Find Blue Hares Glaze ?

Yesterday, 09:54 AM

the ingredient that makes the glaze so attractive is probably rutile.  look for the word rutile in the title or recipe and it will probably be the "hare's fur" that you want.  



an ordinary blue glaze looks like blue paint, whether flat or shiny. if you think of a wild rabbit and call it just "brown" someone else will think flat brown like paint.  rutile is the thing that makes the color so much like a wild rabbit.  lots of different brown hairs next to each other add up to a spectacular brown.


maybe some of you who use commercial glazes have colors that do not satisfy you.  if you have nothing to lose anyway, try adding just the tiniest bit of rutile and stirring well.  see if your ugly glaze gains some life.
