  1. So I usually mix dry stains with dry glaze, but currently have a large quantity of mixed Laguna MS 29 clear glaze I want to use instead. How would I figure out quantity of stain to add? My usual ratio is 10g stain to 100g dry glaze. Is this possible and will it have a good outcome??
  2. Hello all! I’ve been wanting to play with mason stains to color my cone 6 porcelain (slip casting) clay body. I eventually want to get a feel for the whole spectrum of colors and my goal is to use combinations of different stains to get unique colors. I know that you can find out which stains are tried and true on Mason Stain’s reference guide for clay bodies but I’m curious as to what stains you all would recommend to go with for starters! I’m also wondering if you guys have played with any stains that aren’t recommended for body stains but still worked and didn’t burn out. Thanks for your time!
  3. Hi all, Hi I have been making samples using Scarva Nano Mason Stains (https://www.scarva.com/en/gb/Nano-Leadfree-Glaze-and-Body-Stains/c-51.aspx) to colour the clay body of the Scarva PF700 Stoneware(https://www.scarva.com/en/gb/Scarva-Earthstone-Professional-PF700-Porcelain-White-Stoneware/m-43.aspx). I am firing to cone 8 (1250c) with a soak of 30mins but as you can see in the attached photo the warm colours are not coming through at all. The cool colours are reasonably close to the colours advertised but still off. Can you please advise whether I am doing anything wrong to cause this? https://imgur.com/a/lGBUh9W
  4. I’m lost. I used Bermuda green mason stain in my porcelain clay body and it turned dark grey. I fired to cone 6. When I mixed it I used about half pound of stain to 7 pounds of a thick slip once wedged I get about 6 pounds of clay. I mix it with a mixer and then wedge it very well. I’ve never had issues before with any other colors. I used amaco clear glaze on top. I don’t believe it’s the glaze(maybe I’m wrong) because even sections I didn’t glaze are dark grey. Someone please shed some light on this and help me achieve the right color before I lose my mind
  5. Hello all. I recently started experimenting with mixing Mason stains in with my b-mix clay body. The green I tried came out beautifully, but the crimson when fired to cone 6 was left with no color. Any suggestions? I thought maybe I hadn't done a high enough percentage, but after doubling the amount it still was the same amount of colorless. I just did a small pebble of clay and left one side unglazed and covered the other with Mayco's zinc free clear and that didn't keep the color in either.

    This large oval shallow dish or deep tray. The hummingbird and gazebo image is done with a Mason Transfer method from a design of my own. The front of the dish is painted in Amaco White LUG, Then the Mason Transfer is applied, bisque fired and then glazed in Amaco Zinc Free Clear and the back is glazed in Coyote Baby Blue.
