I normally fire at cone 6 ox. and the results were very good and =
Zinc. ox. 7
Custer Feldspar 40 (I used Forshammer)
Cornwall stone 20
Rutile 6 =20
In my opinion, this glaze is a keeper for my pallet. Reasonable kilo =
price of materials except for the zinc ox., and very good color and =
I do not know how this glaze looks at higher temp. reduction, but in my =
kiln I was very pleased with a=20

more pronounced but has very soft edges, fading into=20
the a yellowish ground. Brown edges where thin. A tranpsparent glaze =
over it brought up more browns.
A glaze with many color nuances and nice flat surface.
