Same glaze different cone firing


Recommended Posts

Hi there! 
i found this beautiful glaze and I’m trying to figure out if I can use it for cone 6. It says it can be used for cone06 and cone 6. I’ve also seen other glazes that state they can go from cone06-cone10. Is that a thing? How do they work? I’m aware the results are different (the glaze becomes pale or bright or new colors pop and it may cause surface problems). Just wondering if I can fire this guy at cone5/6: https://seattlepotterysupply.com/products/speckled-pink-a-boo-1?variant=34198788538507

The only way to know is to test it on you clay body. Some glaze recipes are quite robust and work over a wide range, and others are finicky within a narrow range. Even ones that are represented by the seller as having a wide range may respond differently on different clay bodies, both as to color and fit (shrinkage) over the range of temperatures.
