Hi, Lynne - go to the website and click on the cone 6
glaze link. There are a couple of really good base glaze recipes there that
will work very well with colorants added.

Hi Lynne,

Why not start with Tony Hansen's 5x20? (
I've only been making glazes for a year and I found the 5x20 a good 'jumping
off' place. And if you have problems/questions, you can appeal to Tony for

Good luck, Carol

Hello Lynne can you be more specific?
I have about 100 glazes for ^6.
I can give you links to 200 more.
Start with Tony Hansen's articles about his 20/5 glaze +
offers to add colorants. Than read, in the same site, Jonathan Kaplan"s
article, about why to
dump the floating blue+easy advises of how to make special effects.
If you are more specific, I will be able to offer you from the very many
glazes I tested in the last 3 years.
