Here's a nice one which I like. If it crawls for you, calcine half of the
EPK before mixing it up (but after weighing it).
Antique White (Tony Hansen's 5x5) ^6
20 Frit 3134
20 Custer Spar
You can vary the zircopax or try other opacifiers to suit your own taste.
This glaze is also nice with a bit of cobalt (if you like a less vibrant
blue), some red iron oxide and rutile for a tan color, or a bit of copper
oxide for a green. (Test before you sell if you try the copper.) I haven't
tried it, but Tony formulated it to also be compatible with chrome/tin pink,
so you might give that a shot if you enjoy that color range.
If you want a more vibrant blue, try the archives and ask for "Opal Blue".
You'll also get a post from Chris Schafale on her experiments with different
oxides in this glaze base.
The archives are full of glazes, not all of which contain gerstley. Try
words like blue, red, green, glossy, matte, etc., rather than ^6 glaze. Most
of the glazes are posted under their names or under a specific

Go to the archives. There are lots of recipes there. I have posted about
twenty that we used for 20 years in ^6 reduction. Some did not require
GB. Others that did require itmay work with the new substitutions for
GB. There are many others who have posted glazes as well. There was an
excellent article in Oct. Ceramics Monthly by Rick Malgrem with lots of
recipes. Some were food safe.There are other articles as well. Go to the
library and look at the magazines. Clay times also has articles every
month. I believe Don Goodrich has recipes on his web site, too.
