Looking For Underglaze?

Recommended Posts

The color reminds me of Slate Blue from Mastering Cone 6 Glazes. But, the finish gives the appearance of being salt fired, or wood fired -- with the color coming from a colored/oxide slip.

Slate Blue you say? Great color. I have said book, and am working my way through it. I'll have to make a note to try that one.

If you are interested in using under glazes I would suggest using AMOCO Velvet Underglaze Series, royal blue and hunter green. (The hunter green looks like a light turquoise in the jar but is in fact a dark green) Dip a wet brush into each color and brush it onto the surface. Stop and repeat as soon as the colors blend. A satin mat overglaze on top of that. Repeat this until the ware is completely covered or you get the look you like. I agree with the others that you are looking at the results of a glaze and firing on the piece in the picture.

The color and Texture look very close to a glaze I am using.  its called Laura's Turquoise

cone 10 reduction. works well in oxidation.   whiting 34%, Custer feldspar 22%, kaolin 28%, silica 8%, cobalt carb 0.2%, copper carb 2.9%, Rutile ceramic  2.9%,  Bentonite 2%, 

try a small batch and let us know what you think.  have fun Tom

I was thinking it was a clear base, for where the leaf is. Then the same glaze with a mason stain tint. The meeting of the clear against the color makes me think it's the same glaze. The speckles being iron in the clay. I've seen the technique before.
