I forgot to add that I have already tried Mason stains and the reds burn out
at high temps. I'm working with reds, browns, yellows, and oranges at the
moment (^6 oxidation).

Just made my 9,000th phone call of the day and was told by a supplier that
Mason has three new inclusion stains: Lobster, Tangerine, and Chrome Tin
Violet, that are supposed to fire up to 2300 C. The tech support at Mason
didn't let me in on this, also told me that any Chrome/Tin stain would burn
out at higher temps.

Anyone tried these new stains at high temps? Thanks.
