Mat, overall green glaze. Darker where thickest, lighter green where
thicker, on higher parts of textured test tile. Lana advises can run where
very thick, but did not on tile. Where thickest yeilds bronze. My test
shows pretty much an even green with some variations in thick and thin. Can
be applied over a a white lichen glaze (Mark Bell's). My test showed a
lighter green overall.
Best regards from Alisa in Denmark.

It is good to hear of other test results and compare. Your firing
schedule is right up and fast and off. Mine is a deal slower. You got
reds. My test is all green, the one more or less you describe.
Thanks for the notes,

funny that you mentioned this recipe. I just did a test on it also.
Brush on nicely, spray on nicely, but best dipped.Matte green, kind of
like teal hunter green. where it's thickest, it showed up red. Firing
sceduale was ^6 oxidation to fast. No holding, no slow firing, just
fast, within 6 to 8 hours, cooled on its own.also fired without plugs
in the peepholes. This was done in 100 gram test. Will be making the
1000 gram test to see how it suspends. Kathryn in NC --- In

Alisa, Thanks for the kind words. It's just a different way of firing
that my boss, rick, do and it surprised the hell out of me enough to
post a question about it this past fall on clayart. The answers
clarified it enough for me. People just have different ways of doing
it. I'm just so excited about you doing the tests, as I'm going to
forward the whole thing to Him. It';ll be great to compare notes then.
Happy potting! Warmly, Kathyn in NC
