I recently purchased a pint of Spectrum Hot Running Chowder and am wondering if anyone else who has tried it can answer a few questions. My glaze arrived settled out into the corner of the jar with a hard lump as if the jar was tilted and the mass formed during shipment. Well, I managed to break that up and stir it in, and shake it violently and it all seemed pretty well mixed. Another thing I noticed is that there was no factory seal over the mouth of the jar after opening the lid and I could not recall if another of my Spectrum glazes had a seal or not. Anyway, the most disturbing is the color of the glaze after a cone 5 firing in O2. It was a transparent glossy brown, not the creamy whitish/frosty blue I read about and looks nothing like the test tile they advertise. Can anyone help?
I am also quite disappointed in the Green Stone I bought as well which, again looks nothing like the test tile and is super glossy after a cone 5 firing.
