  1. Hi all Thanks for all your help So much information from such experts to someone with no expertise Will try these options and see what happens. The less zircosil and the cone 6 idea. Both sound like worth a try Will have to make some more test tiles first and will let you know

  3. Hi Neil I did not know they would work at cone 6. The 4/3/2/1/ recipe will work at cone 6 I take it I can try this and add more stain I have added 10% normally but a test I did last week I added 15 % and the colour did come up stronger The stains I was told were firing temperature of 1300 I thought that was the temperature they needed to go to So 1300 is anything up to ? Ok thats good I am inexperienced at this game Started this year. Bought my first kiln about 6 months ago 3.3 cubic ft. That’s why I’m looking to get a bigger kiln as I have nearly out grown it Been a real challenge but an awful lot of fun with the firing side of things a much bigger challenge Throwing pots etc got nothing on getting the firing part right
  4. Hi Min yes I’m quite sure they are up to 1300 Celsius 4321 works very well with anything else I have tried ,well at least as far as I know anyway 10% zircosil added for white base thanks again Min regards richard
