  1. Thanks for your response and nice question! What exactly is it.. For me it's this reptilian like texture when the glaze is thick, it's this sort of pleated texture which is kind of difficult to photograph but here are some pictures which I think illustrates the effect: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1UpZ7uk8TrbMwZqy9bihuzKpZfM54ZOZj?usp=sharing I really like when the glaze takes on an entirely different kind of surface texture more-so than a flat tight covering over the piece. --- Thanks to everyone that has taken the time to respond here! As I test the new glazes I will update this thread to share the results!
  2. Thank you for the correction! I amended the original post ^ Thanks for the suggestion! Alabama Rain looks very nice i will look into it!
  3. Also if you guys are interested here are some pictures of a piece that I used the original VC Matte with 10% titanium dioxide on: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1zNPqmY3o5s52ZhoRO73ivp7eD01KsDrV?usp=sharing
  4. Thanks for the effort!! I have used VC Matter before with 10% titanium dioxide and I really love the results under slow cooling
  5. Actually I'm based in the Netherlands so this is the price I'm looking at : https://www.keramikos.nl/chemicalien/410-lithium-carbonaat-500-gram.html?search_query=lithium+carbonate&results=9 --it seems it's roughly equivalent with the currency conversion... Thanks for your reference though I will look into their shipping options. It looks like from the site you posted it's 60$ per lb
  6. Hi guys - Like the title says I'm trying to substitute Lithium Carbonate in my glaze for another material because it's so expensive. I have read that an alternative could possibly be Spodumene, but from what I can see it's got about 1/5 the amount of Lithium than the carbonate form. I've set up a comparison in digital fire, but at this point I'm not sure what the best way is to proceed with testing, maybe someone with more experience can give some insight.. From the digital fire reference: Thanks very much !
  7. found a helpful frit comparison chart http://shop.clay-planet.com/frits.aspx VC-white earthenware-mineral-compostion.pdf
  8. Maybe there are other reasons as well, but I know one reason is to maintain the whiteness of the body
  9. hi everybody, i'm a ceramic designer from michigan currently living in the netherlands. I would like to adapt one of Val Cushing's earthenware recipes to materials I can access in Europe. I think I have access to most of the chemicals expect for the Frit. Also I was wondering if there was an equivalent to EPK in Europe. E.P.K. (Plastic Kaolin) --- 10 Grolleg China Clay --- 20 Ball Clay --- 10 (Ferro) Frit # 3124 - 10 Talc - 10 Wollastonite - 10 Molochite - 30 + 2% Bentonite From what I gather so far the Molochite is pretty expensive from where I'm ordering it (Keramikos.nl) Cushing-LowFireClay.pdf
