Dear Jenny,
Adding commercial stains or underglazes to your glaze will have little
effect on the firing temperature. I very often add stains. Depending on the
color you want 4% to l0% to a glaze.If it is an underglaze your best bet
is a spoonful at a time for pastel colors,more if you want a darker hue. I
fire anywhere from cone 5 to 7 in an electric kiln.Mia in very hot ABQ
