Icy blue matt, cone 5, oxidation.

Tested on light, iron flecked, midrange stoneware, fired to 1215c with a =
30 min. soak, oxidation.

15.8 Barium Carbonate
5.3 Whiting
12.1 Zinc oxide
52.8 Potash
4.9 Kaolin
9.1 Flint

3% Nikkel ox.

Forshammer feldspar for Potash
All precents were measured up or down to the nearest whole precent.

Resulted in a stable, gloss, honey brown. However, kiln fired hot, six =
cone was done, so this could be tried again for a blue if you fire to =
cone 5.
