    The dark spots on the bracelet beads are from layering 2 different glazes over each other. The base glaze needs to be dark brown or black and fairly fluid. You apply that first then put a layer of a stiffer glaze on top, this can be white or coloured. When the glazes melt the fluid bottom glaze boils up through the top stiffer glaze. It will take some experimenting to come up with 2 lowfire glazes that do this. For the mottled blue glazes like OldLady said look for recipes using either rutile or titanium dioxide. Some of the materials we use in North America are going to be different that what you have available in Iran so it's hard to suggest recipes. Even with the same materials it takes testing as glaze recipes can give different results to different people depending on a number of factors such as the claybodies used, firing schedules, material differences etc.

    I'm open to experimenting and learning, unfortunately, glaze knowledge resources in my city are very limited, so i must learn most of it by myself. On the other hand i'm a do-it-all-myself kind of a woman, so i have no worries.:rolleyes: Just need a kick start and basics. 

    The blue glaze is really mesmerising. Is it cobalt in it's recipe? And about the bracelet, can you elaborate on what is stiffer glaze? How can i make it?

    Thank you for sharing

    welcome to the forum, sima!

    someone will be able to help you with this question.  there are many ways to achieve the results you like.  are you familiar with glaze ingredients?  i believe the lovely sliding down of the blue glaze tests are done with rutile.    i have seen the effects shown on the bracelets but have not done that myself except once with a white glaze on top of a black one.

    no time right now, must load and start my kiln, but i will be back later.

     

    Thank you. I really appreciated the help. the blue one, is it cobalt oxide with titanium oxide recipe? The color is mesmerising.

  4. hi everyone. i'm Sima from Iran.

    i'm a beginner. i learned the basics of the glazes. but in here the common kilns the max temp is 1080 C degrees and we don't use cones. 

    i want these effects as i see in every foreign pages and i really appreciate it if  anyone could help me to find these glaze recipes that i

    could use in this temp? and in the bracelet i want the speckles. the dark spots in the glaze. how can i achieve that?

    thank you.

    peace

    Sima

  5. thank you guys, working with clay and glazing are so much fun and all about experience. i really hope learning these techniques.

    actually english is my third language and in Iran, the resources are rare so it's hard to feed my curiosity. i'll try to find videos.

    we have our traditional pottery and glazing but i am fascinated with the gold lustre dinner set and the plate with rainbow shadow.

    regards,

    sima

    Sima, although gold is also a lustre and applied and fired the same way, it is food safe and a bit more durable (unless microwaved).

    That dinnerware set Is beautiful. 

    hi rae. 

    do you know any video or any toturial that explains how gold lustre is used?

    it's expensive but beautiful and food safe.

    thank you.
