Boy, do I have a fabulous clear glaze for you!! I tested about l5
clears last year and only came up with 2 that I would consider using.

This glaze is incredibly forgiving - doesn't show drips, overdips,
differences in thickness, is glassy clear w/o yellow, and doesn't craze.
Can you believe it? I couldn't either, but it's true and I am
absolutely thrilled with this glaze. It only has 4 ingredients, too.

^5-6 Clear Glaze:

Soda Feldspar (Minspar) 40
Gerstley Borate 30
Ball Clay 20
Silica l0

I use this over slips and underglazes and it's fine. I also use lusters
over it with great results.
What can I say? This is THE PERFECT clear glaze. Have fun.
