Lee, you may have me there. I hadn't realized that
Albany slip is a single compound. The analysis I
have lists: SiO2, Al2O3, FeO, Fe2O3, and about 5
other oxides.
Maybe we *are* speaking different languages. How do
you define "eutectic"?

Jess, how about a glaze that is only made of one
material? Like
Albany Slip?
