Hey Clayart!

Here's a glaze I got by line blending a glaze from an ancient Ceramics Monthly, and the infamous Randy/Gregg's Red. And fiddling with it vigorously and randomly (with Ron Roy's help).

So to make a long story short its denim blue with hints of pink, breaking to clear on a red-firing clay body. Electric fire. Its translucent straw yellow on a white body.

Chemistry lovers: Boron-blue flush encouraged by Iron?
