I keep looking for a shino that doesnt crawl (maybe acts more like a celedon?) but find very few. I know i need to do some testing, but am wondering if anyone has a good base recipe that is super simple that might be on the smoother side of shinos.
i know the basic neph sye 70 / clay 30. this seems a bit dry from what i have seen.
would adding more neph sye smooth it out? or would i have to add a different flux? i see a lot of soda ash but i hate that stuff as it burns the skin.
and another question:
has anyone ever added red iron oxide, yellow ochre, or something similar to a shino glaze? just curious about your results. i kind of want to see if i can make a dark brick red shino color.
ps - pictures are nice if you have them. words are harder for this layman.
Phil;Try adding 5% Redart. It seives out a little coase, but makes a nice red. Sorry,no pics.TJR
