Does anyone have any idea on how the color variation/movement in the green glaze is created? It is a premade glaze from my local pottery shop, and the employees were unable to tell me how it is done. I have a basic ingredients list, but it does not give specifics on the type of feldspar or frits used. Any help would be appreciated, as I'm new to glaze making. Thank you! Here is a link to the basic ingredients sheet. The glaze is called Metallic Green, under the HG (high gloss) section. https://www.mnclay.com/msds/glazes.aspx
Hi! I'm very very very new to mixing my own glazes and I was wondering if anybody who has more experience would know how to adjust this cone 6 clear gloss glaze to be more glossy? This recipe fires well with my clay body (Georgie's Kristy Lombard or G-Mix 6) and Amaco underglazes, but I just wish it had a bit more sheen to it. Here it is: Feldspar Custer 200m - 36.5%, Frit Ferro 3134 - 20%, EPK - 18%, Silica 400 - 12%, Whiting - 8.5%, Talc 325 - 5%, Bentonite - 2%
bubbly.pdf Hello, hi ! I've been a bit lost and what seems to be a loop when looking to re-create this glaze somehow. I'm pretty fresh to pottery, and am willing to take any and all information to help me understand what creates this effect and if this piece is done by using two different types of glazes. For example a white over gray glaze with a higher levels of iron oxide? Thank you kindly
