I looked at Ashley's best as well as several others in John's mid range book there are seveal that look like they have enough mag carb will test several.

.5% cobalt carb should do it. at lest that's about where I'll start

Thanks for the tip on Tin vs zircopax, maybe some of both.

Also don't leave the cork in while drying, the clay will shrink and crack the clay.. When I made them I found that my index finger to about the second knuckle worked as a reliable measuring device, still have it, hope I don't loose it :)

The tasting method was used by the early Seagrove (NC)potters to tell when they passed the grittier strata and in to the smooth production clay. the mouth is more sensitive than fingers.

Cream cheese looks like a really good training tool for turning porcelain, or visa versa.

it also looks like a reduction fired test, as iron does go green in reduction
