I have a glaze that is mottled matte green when thinly applied. (Cone
But a dry black gun metal when thick.
I have two larger pots, bottles really, that I would like to experiment
with sand blasting the glaze, feathering the removal of glaze from
total to none. Thin to thick.
My Question is, can I expect a range of color similar to the green
matte glaze? Or will the black gun mental color remain the same? I
understand that glazes have their own inherent behaviors but given the
question of refired sandblasted glazes generally...will they frequently
refire with positive results?
Soon I will have the answers because I am going to try it. But it would
be helpful to hear from anyone who has tried this method before.
I will report back to you of my results.
Until then, keep potting.

Dan, what oxides do you have in the glaze? I first heard of using
muratic acid to take the bloom off of oribe from Warren MacKenzie, who
learned it from Ken Matsuzaki. I wonder if this would effect your glaze
