Hi Ceramicists! I'm an elementary art teacher and have typically used colored commercial underglazes and a clear commercial overglaze for my little students to finish their work. (06, typical white low fire body) Recently I tried a version of in which the student work is first dipped in an opaque white glaze and commercial gloss colors are applied over. It's a definite improvement in what I've been doing, and the kid's work came out much brighter and more appealing, the whole process was much more forgiving. Only this - I have three gallons of clear to use up. Can I add zircopax or tin oxide or something else to my commercial clear to get a good white majolica base? Thanks for any thoughts! Cristy in WY
Hi! I understood there are some very experienced ceramic artists here, so I decided to ask this question here. I have a problem. I have a thin porcelain wall and light goes through it easily. I want to totally block this light from going through with the most opaque glazing possible (still has to look good). I have tried different concentrations of tin oxide mixed into normal glazing (from 5% to 30%), but still some light passes through! Do you have any ideas? How would you make the most opaque glazing?
