  1. @tinbucket The result seems quite interesting. Just left with the difficulties to find the right materials here in Canada (Gillespie borate & Jackson Ball clay). I assume that Gillespie borate could be replaced with Gerstley borate, but Jackson ball clay: this would require some reseach. Thanks. DC
  2. Yes. I found this one earlier (GA6-A), unfortunately it is going over a white or lightly colored slip. Interesting for future use, though. So far, the only one I find that seems to work is the G3806C (from Digital Fire). Definitely will do several test tiles and mini pots before going further. DC
  3. Hi Callie, Thanks a million for your detailed reply. The only kiln I have access to is the school one and they only fire at cone 6. I don't know the details of their firing cycle. Will have to enquire. I will show them your reply. Wondering if firing at cone 6 could work as well with this particular glaze? DC
  4. Hi, I am looking for a transparent glaze that won't cloud the surface of a Plainsman M-390 or M-332 clay fired at cone 6. It could be manufactured or a recipe. A glossy or satin finish, although I read that the more mat it is, the riskier it is to get a cloudy finish as well. I ruined many weeks of efforts with the homemade transparent glaze available at my workshop/class last week. All the pieces came out with a pinkish-beige tone just good enough for the trash can. I then read in John Britt's book (mid-range glazes) that clear glazes on dark stoneware bodies can appear gray when fired due to the underlying iron which affects the color, which I am trying to avoid from now on. Many thanks in advance for your help. DC
