I don't know if it's considered kosher or not,
But I use small amounts of
to alter the gloss in some of my glazes.
(not functional glazes)
If I have a satin glaze that gets too glossy after ball milling,
I'll change the formula to tune the gloss,
by adding .5 to 1.5% of calc al.
It doesn't take much to make a big difference.
Just for fun,
you could do a line blend test
on your Licorice
of stepping up .5% calc al each time
from say .5 to 4%,
and see what happens.
