Here is a recipe for an oatmeal glaze I used in both oxidation and
reduction when I used to fire to cone l0. This is particularly nice on
porcelain or a white stoneware body. It matures at cone 9. The base recipe
is from Carleton Ball.
Soda Felspar 27grams
Barnard clay l0
this recipe gives an oatmeal color with light brown
If you substitute 10 grams of umber for the Barnard Clay , you get a lovely
mottled brown. Substituting l0 grams of ochre for the Barnard Clay
results in a nice dark brown glaze. Substituting 10 grams of crocus martis
results in a medium mat brown.
You could also try this base recipe with coarse rutile, or ilmenite
for brown specks.
