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!
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
