Hi Dunstan,

From John Britt's 14-OCT-19  article "Crazy Beautiful Crazing: Uncovering the Mysteries of Snowflake Crackle Glazes" and/or "Snowflake Crackle" 16-OCT-17; both excerpted from NOV-11 Ceramics Monthly magazine article.

Any details you could share? e.g. thickness of application, over what clay(s), fired to what cone/temp, notes on cooling, materials? Could you post pictures? Did/does the glaze stay well mixed; did you add Epsom salt?

I recall one of our artists at the studio using Britts snowflake crackle. It performed as represented but needed to be crazy thick. Even  to the point of bisquing the first glaze layer so you could add another layer over it just make it super thick. No special cooling that a I recall,  Just that crazy thickness thing. Nice results though at cone six.
