After you've added the stains, try adding an opacifier, such as
Zircopax, for another range of effects.

I'm experimenting with dropping from ^10 to ^6. I bought a bunch of
Tuckers Mid Cal ^6 and have been making mugs, salters etc. as test
Do any of you out there use this particular body and are willing to
share a few "bullet-proof" glazes? I've already tested a good clear. I
am looking for very colourful glazes to distinguish my new work (^6)
from my old (^10). I will monitor sales, and that will be the direction
my future work will go.
Let me tell you in advance I appreciate any and all feedback.

If you are satisfied with the clear glaze yu have, just buy a lot of
different glaze stains and add them to your glaze, in increments of 4 to 5%
for pastel colors and 6 to 8% for darker hues. Mia in sunny ABQ
