I’m testing three new glaze recipes. Two of them I found in the John Britt mid fire glazes book, one of them is a studio glaze I’ve used a few times before. I’m testing a clear version of the two glossy glazes as well as colour variations of each. I also tested colour variations of Janet’s Matte White but didn’t test the white glaze itself. These are the bases I started with.
Hansen Clear Base
Janet’s Matte White
*I will post the mason stain amounts with fired test tiles*
Campana Dark Purple
Janets Matte Blackberry
Janets Matte Orchid
I decided to use a few of the cups I made this summer as test tiles.
I sprayed the glazes on the outside and poured them on the inside. I used a paintbrush to layer glazes and test how the fire together. I’m using black clay with porcelain wedged in, so I’m only firing to cone 5.5 so my black clay doesn’t bloat.
