It is scary how thick the glaze must be to get this effect.


The oil spot 1 was sprayed on. Oil spot 2 was poured on - which was a first for me - never poured glaze onto a piece. Did 3 separate pours. Will cut it back to 2.

Yes. My test tile was dipped, 2 seconds for each glaze with SG 165-170, and it came out like this piece. Spraying has been a challenge. Each time the OS2 was sprayed too thin. Spray and wait till dry 3 times for the base, Oil spot 1. Then poured the Oil Spot 2.


This is very informative and worth trying Frank Vickery's way (there is a .pdf attachment about midways on this page) ---> http://cone6pots.ning.com/forum/topics/6-oil-spot-mfa-thesis

Just read your comments about thickness. Those iron black bases need to be super thick to get the above oilspot effect. I tried it with Pierre's Tenmoku and its absurd how thick that glaze has to be to look good. Otherwise. BROWN. 


Glad to see you got it going on. Looks great.
