Ol' bonehead me put together a glaze test that used Xavier's base and
lost the recipe for it.
I've found a recipe for a "Xavier ^6 Satin matte," but somehow I feel
that this isn't the one.
I've searched the Clayart database, but with no luck. =20
If anybody out there can help with a base glaze SPECIFICALLY named
"Xavier's," I'd really appreciate it.
Yes=85 I AM much more careful now in recording my test information.
Thanks yet again,

CLAYART Digest - 26 Oct 2001 to 27 Oct 2001 (#2001-300)Jimmy,
On John Hesselberth's website, there is a glaze posted and analyzed as =
foodsafe. It's called "Xavier's Warm Jade Green".
Maybe the base (without the green) is what you're looking for?
It's a Cone 6 glaze.
The URL for his site is below:
Click on hyperlink for "glaze stability" and then on "Click here" for =
There is Xavier's green attributed to Val Cushing's handbook (satin =
also Revised Xavier from Ron Roy (glossy).
There is alot of good info there and John and Ron are making a book too.
(No, I don't get compensated for advertising).
I tried to cut-and-paste the recipes here but their chart form probably =
unreadable from Clayart.
Of course, by now you've probably found your misplaced notes...
