I'm doing some tests and research into trying to achieve wood kiln like effects in electric kilns at cone 6. Tests with ash glazes, flashing slips, and added wood ash to name a few of the things I'm testing. Does anyone have any information or a starting point on how I would be able to achieve flashing effects similar to a wood or soda/salt kiln firing in a cone 6 electric kiln? Thanks!
Hi I'm wondering if anybody has a recipe for a cone 10 reduction copper red glaze (I'm talking oxblood or peach bloom, NOT flambÃ©) that flashes electric blue? I hear that if you use a feldspar based glaze and use a feldspar that is high in potassium and low in sodium (usually its the other way around) that the glaze will tend to have these blue flashes more. If you know a good recipe and have tried it yourself what cone does it work best around? I know that these glazes don't do best at cone 10 but rather around 8-9, but I still wanna hear your experience. Also, I like to do a quick oxidation at the end of my firing in order to make the copper reds less muddy and dark. If you've had good results, how long do you do this oxidation for? Thanks, Hunter
