  1. Hi, I'm trying to get the elusive oxidation copper red with localized reduction glaze to work. Everywhere I look it suggests 600 mesh silicon carbide is necessary to get the localized reduction. The silicon carbide I have is 400 mesh. How can I increase the mesh of my silicon carbide?
  2. Crystalline Glaze Chemistry Several have inquired about this specialty glaze in recent months, so I thought I would post an introduction into crystalline chemistry. The very first thing to do with this glaze is: throw out your glaze calculator and UMF spreadsheet: they do not apply to this glaze nor can you bring it into unity. Basic cone 6 through 10 crystalline recipe is: 50% ferro frit 3110, 25% zinc oxide, 25% silica 325m, and a seeding agent (see later). ^ Lithium carbonate flux additions discussed later. This is the basic crystalline glaze r
