These Glaze Tests were fired on Highwater Ellen Buff Clay.  The Cones touched shelf at Cone 6.  I did a 15
minute soak at top temp on MED.  Started cutting manual
switches off at 5 minute intervals after the first 15 minutes.
This Glaze is Noxema Blue

Two Dips

Results
Bright Blue with smooth nice glaze.  No
pinholes.  I did two tests on this glaze.  One
where I washed the test tube and the other
where I did not wash the tube.  There were a
number of significant pinholes where I did not
wash the tube. 
This is Glaze Number 53

Two Dips of JH&RR MC6 Clear Liner with
.5% Cobalt Carb (that is point 5%)
