I have had the opportunity to run two high fire loads this week and
here are the results of testing for "Pussy Willow" and "Blueberry Hill":
See attached image
#1 This is my first test batch that I loved. This sample of it
doesn't match my original results though.
#2 Using Tom and Autumn's suggestions, I mixed 60% custer with 40%
kona and sieved through a kitchen mesh strainer. This was closer but
still tooooo shiny. So....
#3 Then I thought, maybe I accidentally omitted the gerstley borate,
so in this test I used the 60% custer and 40% kona ratio but omitted the
gerstley borate. This was still shinier than #1 but had some nice depth
#4 This was my original recipe (no custer) with the gerstley borate
omitted. This gave a matte finish with nice speckling.
In conclusion, I must have omitted the gerstley borate...
I also did placement tests with #3 & #4 and each glaze looks
different depending on its location!
I will continue to experiment. Thank you all for your help.
You are all keeping me sane while my broken wrist heals.

Well, dang. The image can't be viewed on Clayart :( I'm assuming that
"blueberry hill" is a blue; what color is Pussy Willow?
