Forsahmmer Feldspar for Kona F-4
Clear semimatte glaze with a satin feel. Like Charles description, it =
looks like vellum. Turned slightly yellow on my clay body.
All oxides, Cobalt, RIO, black stain, Chrome and Ochre, showed straight =
edges as painted. However, glaze covered the oxides enough to let the =
painting show through, but the colors were virtually indistinguishable =
from each other. Otherwise a well covering, good feel, semimatte glaze.
