I am quite new to ceramic glazing- still very much in the experimental stage, always looking for alternative pigments. I recently found in my local hardware store a blue oxide powder used to colour cement,
It is an intense blue pigment which I think is copper phthalocyanine. has anyone out there used this pigment in a glaze. I would love to know as I am looking for another blue oxide other than cobalt oxide which is expensive.
I am quite new to glazing and am looking for tried and true recipes. I particularly want a good aubergine gloss glaze which fires at cone 6 oxidation. I am using stoneware clay. Any suggestions welcome!
I am new to this forum so feeling "newish". Would anyone like to share their recipe for a clear gloss glaze using potash and whiting? I used various percentages of these and had a bit of crazing. Should I add boron - google research suggest this as a solution to crazing. All ideas welcome. Many thanks!
