Tested on white, mid range stoneware, cone 6, oxidation.

50 Frit 3134
30 EPK
20 Silica

Local frit for 3134

Resulted in same stable, clear, high gloss as receipe with G.B. instead =
of Frit in same proportion.

I tested the same with Colemanite instead of G.B. and got a very dry, =
underfired glaze.

Personal: When you out of almost all of your raw materials and need a =
glaze, this is one of the simplist I have tested, except for Ebony,
half Oldenwalder, half Frit.
