Hi, Earl and Folks,

I've tried Artificial Salt a few times in the past
and really like it. Use it just like any other glaze;
fire to cone 10. Really nice results. I've also used
it with some crystal glaze firings, and in a soak it
forms small crystals of what I think are pyroxine.
Got pictures if you're interested.
