request for translucent maroon cone 6 (oxidation) recipe

Hi everyone:
I need help. I am sorry to say that I have lost one of my favorite glaze
recipes. I don't know whose recipe it was origianally, but it really comes
out nicely. The name is translucent maroon, cone 6, oxidation. I have used
this recipe for over two years, and am distraught that I can't remember the
ingredients. If you have it, I would be most appreciative of you sharing it
with me. Thanks.

Hi there! I have a recipe for this glaze that I got from Clayart a year
ago. I imagine it should be in the Clayart archives - have you tried this?
I won't be looking at my email for a couple of days, and can't get the
file today, but if you have no luck or answer by Thursday let me know and
I will dig it out.

This glaze has been discussed on clayart previously. Its a really nice gloss
cone 6 oxidation maroon/dark red (despite the description). Darker where
thick, breaks to white where thin.
