Comments: Revision by Ron Roy, food safe.
Tested on mid range, iron flecked stoneware, fired to 1220c, oxidation.=20

25 Frit 3134
12 Dolomite
2 Lithium Carb.
10 G200 Spar
26 Ball Clay

Subbed local frit for 3134
Subbed local spar for G200
Resulted in a stable yellow tan gloss glaze, with white frosting =
throughout. In the heaviest applied areas, frosting has a=20
bluish hue. Many nuances in glaze color for a glaze with so little =
Personal: Too quick to dump the test glaze. Have to mix it up again and =
try it under Ababy's (maybe weak) Matt Zinc Glaze.
He says the Butterscotch likes that treatment.
