I have been looking for an Oatmeal coloured glaze for my electric kiln
firing to Cone 6.
I tried to adjust one that was used in cone 10 gas fired but it does not
work at all.
If anyone has one they do not mind sharing it will be appreciated greatly.
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL!!!!!!

Hi Les! Here are three recipes for cone 6 Oatmeal. All of these glazes
were given to me awhile ago. I can't tell you where they originated but
I think the first one is Pike's oatmeal. Give them a try.
Cone 6 Oatmeal:(Pike's)
Custer Spar 37.34
Zinc Oxide 2.70
Neph Sye 41.0
For Spots add .08 Granular Illmanite AFTER SIEVING.
Barium Carb 9.90 --Substitute 7.43 Strontium Carb
Ball Clay 7.73
Tin oxide 4.00
Yellow Ochre 2.69
I have not tested any of these glazes so I can't rate them for you.
Cathy Mumford. Happy Holidays!!

OK, due to my New Years' resolution to "get things done" here are two glazes
that you can try at Cone 6
C-6 Spar (Soda spar) 450
Ball Clay (Old Hickory Ball) 250
Zinc Oxide 120
Add: 2-5% Rutile for light tan to gray
Iron Oxicd 3% for tan
Gerstley Borate 14
Mang. Dioxide 1 (this can be left out if you don't want specks)
Hope these help you.

The following glaze is short of silica - as many matte glases are. There
may be problems with certain kinds of food - especially if used for storage
of acidic foods.

The following glaze - which I calculated using the analysis for Aussi spod
- seems to have enough alumina and silica to be stable - It is over
supplied with MgO which may affect durability. Because it has a lot of Li2O
I cannot trust my calculated expansion - it may have a low expansion so
test for that.
