Alisa and Claus Clausen on sun 6 aug 00

Tested on light grey, mid range stoneware, cone 6, oxidation.

45 Frit 3134
20 Barium Frit
10 Dolomite
15 Zircopax
3 Whiting

Substituted Barium Frit with Barium Carb.
Substituted Zircopax for a similar substance called Zircon no. 5.

Results were an a matt,light, honey yellow ground with white crystal =
like highlights. Edges are a toast brown.
Smooth surface outside test cup. Inside cup, glaze is very dry and =
cratered. Still feels smooth, interesting=20
surface for decorative if one seeks a dry, thick glaze. I could see =
this glaze's thickly applied properties on the
inside of a large decorative bowl or on a relief.

Best regards,
