  1. Thanks for that! I don't think I fancy 525 glaze tests.....
  2. Hi, thanks everyone. In answer to your questions: 1. Firing to 1240 2. Oxidation in electric kiln 3. G72150 multi-purpose stoneware transparent glaze, firing range 1200 - 1290 4a. I first used Mason Peacock 6266 at 8% (with the china clay/ ball clay slip - oh, also with a little feldspar potash, recommended by the supplier) This resulted in a very dark blue - could I rectify this by just diluting it with more of the ball/china/little bit of potash clay slip? 4b. Then I used Mason Deep Turquoise 6315 at 8% (with the more complicated slip) I was advised to add the feldspar potash and the silica by the supplier that I bought the stains from, but it resulted in a very washed out anaemic blue instead of the deep turquoise. I imagine I should just forget about the complicated slip? Am I still ok using the ball clay/china clay/little bit of potash slip with the stoneware (I have mixed up quite a bit)? Would there be any difference between using this and a slip made from the white stoneware clay? I'm after a pure colour, as shown on the Mason stains chart. Thanks again!

      Thanks Min - I don't seem to be able to add my reply to the existing thread - how do I do it? (As you can probably tell, this is the first time I've used a forum!)

      Thanks, Wendy

      I think I've put my reply in the right place now?

      Hi Wendy, yes, you have it in the right place now. 

  4. Hi, I'm new to making coloured slips. I have Mason stains, and am using white stoneware clay and also white earthenware clay. I'm adding the Mason stain to a white slip and then sgraffito-ing it before bisque firing. I then use a transparent glaze. So far I've not been able to replicate the colour on the Mason stain tub. The first slip recipe I used was 75% ball clay, 25% china clay. The second was 35% ball clay, 30% china clay, 15% silica quartz and 20% feldspar potash. Neither worked very well. Please could anyone advise what the best ingredients for the white slip are, so that I can get a true colour when fired? Thanks!
