Eggshell Matt
Source: Lela Martens, Canada

Tested on light, iron flecked, mid-range stoneware, fired to 1215c, soak =
30 minutes, oxidation.

10 Dolomite
10 Gerstely Borate
14 Whiting
47 Custer
19 Kaolin

Resulted in a stable, covering, semi matt. Some areas are slightly more =
matt than the general surface and there are some glossy spots where =
glaze is thickest. Nice feel.

Best regards,
