Dear Clayart Members,
I can't believe I am finally writing my first clayart question, but
does anyone have a stable, matt or gloss, cone 6 black glaze? It would be
nice if the glaze was food safe, but right now I would accept anything in
black at cone 5,6, or 7. Thanks for any help.

Here are a few black cone 6 glazes I gleaned from clayart. If you sub
Strontium carb for the Barium in the second they will all be food safe.
From Sharon LaRocca-Miranda-
metallic black, cone 6 ox (wonderful!)
Gerst. bor 25
black iron 10
cobalt ox 2
copper carb 4
from Dan Taylor
METALLIC BLACK ^6 OX.
Custer Feldspar 36
Barium Carb. 8 (Mishy suggests subbing Strontium 5 here)
Cobalt Oxide 3%
Manganese Dioxide 2%
Black Iron Oxide 3%
I have also added 3% #6600 Black Mason stain for an even more black glaze.
(can't remember who posted this originally, might've been me ;)
Crystalline Black ^6 ox
Gerstley Borate 5.25
Custer spar 15.75
Neph Syenite 26.5
Ball clay 21
Hope these help :)

Hi T Hall in Roswell,
Here is a Cone 6 glaze that I have found to be ver
Potash Feldspar 42, Silica 26, Whiting 15, Kaolin 15, Zinc Oxide 12, Red
Iron Oxide 8, Cobalt Oxide 1
This gives a shiny, mirror black.

Try this one:
Barium C. 2
Lithium C. 5
Cobalt C. 3
Iron O. 4
Manganese D. 2
This is a very stable gloss black with a long firing range. If you want it
more matt, try cutting down the lithium.
Hope this helps.

=3E Our club is in need of a recipe for a shiny black foodsafe glaze. We =
=3E at =5E6 oxidation. Thank you=21

Cone 6 Based on Leach Clear/Transparent Oxidised
Potash Feldspar 40
Flint (Quartz) 25
Whiting (CaCo3) 20
China Clay 12.5
This gives a really good shiny surface and can be quite thick and does not
run. You could add 2.5 of Bentonite to make it up to unity.
adding the oxides Iron Oxide 8
Mang. Di. 3
Cob Carb 1
This gives an absolutely brill black, used quite thick. I posted the base
glaze a few days ago. Also if you want a raw glaze the following is just
your man, you will have to work out the thickness to apply, as this is
Cone 6 Raw or Once Fired Glaze. This glaze can be painted on very easily=21
Potash Feldspar 38
Flint (Quartz) 20
Whiting (Chalk) 32
Ball Clay 10
Happy potting Marek http://www.moley.uk.com
