Test the glazes under a ^6 clear hi calcium no zinc glaze.
DON'T mix. That sounds like a disaster waiting to happen.
I got a bunch of ^06 stuff (Duncan, Mayco, Ceramichrome) at a garage sale.
They make awsome underglazes but....TEST, TEST, TEST.
I mentioned this in a previous post. In my opinion, the duncan Amaze-a-Glaze
and Mayco One Strokes are brighter and truer than some amaco underglazes
under my ^6 clear glaze. I've painted on greenware to set and painted on bisque
ware. Try applying over the fired ^6 glaze and fire down to ^06. Play with it.
If it's cheap do it. Nothing ventured.........
Gotta run, kids on the roof
