Glaze Number 21
McCall's Mixed White
This is a glaze that I mixed 50% and 50%
1/2 of the Glaze is JH&RR MC6 Magolica Glaze
1/2 at Gertsley Borate Glaze
(GB 50%, Kaolin 25%, and Silica 25%, Zircopax 8%)
The reason I did this was that JH&RR Majolica
was coming out too fat for me and I was
getting some pinholes.
I wanted a more fluid glaze, but one that
was opaque also.
Apply no more than two dips or you
will get pinholes.
You may also want to try a 75%/25% mix.
Glaze Number 22
70% Frit--Ferro 3195
8 % Kaolin--EPK
Nice clear smooth glaze, but
I had pinholes and some bubbles
with large Cone 6 at 9 o'clock
May need to fire higher or increase Frit
Has potential. Maybe someone has
another suggestion for reducing pinholes
and bubbles. Very clear. This glaze was in a recent
issue of Ceramics Monthly.

Somewhat muddy. No pinholes
Glaze Number 25
Amaco's Pompepian Blue Ash
I found that it has to be applied thin
or you will get bubbles. May need to be
fired at a higher temp.
This piece is somewhat dry.
Glaze Number 26
Bottom shows color of one dip
Smooth semi matt
Basically a solid color
No variations or texture
Works good with Nutmeg
and other shinos in tests
to have a variation in color.
Not remarkable by itself

Glaze Number 30
Used 4 oz. Duncan Cone 05/06 Clear
added 1/4 cup of Kaolin
and 1/4 cup Silica
I was given a gallon of the Duncan Clear
and it must have been 20 years old. Remixed
and tried this combination with the following:
This actually turned out to be a nice semi glossy
clear glaze. It will bubble where thick. I want to
try it with 1/8 cup of kaolin and 1/8 cup of silica
to reduce bubbles where thick.
It is very nice where it does not collect and has
and almost orange peel feel.
Glazes were fired on Highwater Ellen Buff Clay.
Cone 6 at 9 o'clock in 7 1/2 hours.
