Help please. Being the liaison between The Roswell Museum and Art Center I
ask if anyone has a tried and true receipe for a shiney black glaze ^ 6-7
for oxidation. It will be used on Dillo White clay. Sorry for the rush
request but we up against a deadline on another service type project. TIA

Here's a glaze I adapted from ^10 (just leave out the lithium for ^10). It's
a very glossy black black with a very long firing range in either oxidation
or reduction. You may want to add just a touch of chreome oxide. I've handed
this glaze out in my tile workshops for years, and I know a lot of people
have had success with it.
