How to make horsehair raku blue

Recommended Posts

Google underglaze and pick a color they can be thinned and applied as a wash as well as any level of solid color. Underglazes are colorant, clay, maybe some frit and something added for brush-ability. Colorants can be oxides but are often stains. It’s fairly difficult to make your own using stain, clay, etc......  most folks just use a commercial underglaze.

here is one vendor: https://www.amaco.com/t/glazes-and-underglazes/underglaze/velvet-underglaze/velvet-underglazes

There are many others.

The work below is underglaze and is shown as an example of the ability to wash or water color effect to varying degrees.

Would the underglaze be made from mason stain?

Extremely likely from ceramic stains, depends which brand the underglaze is made from. Might be Mason might be another stain manufacturer.
