The original glaze was posted by Marty Anderson. Ron Roy
decreased the amount of the Lithium.
I found out later that the glaze works good without lithium carbonate.
The magic is the relation between ruttile 5% and Titanium about 10%
The original recipe was:
Frit 3134 20
Ball Clay (OM4) 20
Titanium Dioxide 10
I changed it as I could not buy Spodumen at that time. I used my available
English kaolin&ball clay.
Recently Alisa, posted another glaze with the same base, I wrote Soft blue
not sure if that was the original name. From alisa:
"Resulted in a
very fluid, gloss glaze with colors throughout varying from greenish brown
to opal blues and whites.
A lot of movement in the glaze and one big pinhole where thickest under lip.
Streaking on inside of bowl lead to
a pool of aqua gloss in middle of bowl"
Just looks like a good base to work with either the original The way
Marty Anderson , as well as Alisa posted , RR version or mine without the
Food for mind!
In my humble site there are two examples of the Butterscotch glaze
