First, I'm a subscriber to the Glaze Recipes. Is it possible to search by color? It would save me a lot of time and aggravation. Can someone explain the order of the glaze recipes? Another question is color variety. For instance orange, a favorite color. Are there oranges that cannot be used straight out of the jar, or using varying amounts of underglaze? Also, has anyone successfully added underglazes to gloss or matte clear? Thanks!
Hi all, Currently I work with mid-fire slip and glaze my work 'traditionally' to achieve quite muted, natural tones. I'm thinking about making some wares that I want to be BRIGHT and flat in colour - like popping, primary colours. I'm wondering what the best way to achieve this level of colour would be? In my experience using stains in glazes never seems to achieve the flatness I'm after. I would suspect a coloured slip might be the answer but again using stains only seems to result in pastels - what is the average ratio of stain to slip to achieve a full bodied red for example? Or would I paint the work all over with an underglaze? Or something else. All suggestions appreciated!
