Hi all,
Just wondering if anyone could help me in finding out what when wrong with my glaze. I just resently started working in low temps ( used to working cone 10) and am having glaze troubles. The glaze I started with was

Frit 3124 ......75.5
Neph Sy.......9.4
EPK.............9.4
Lithium.........3.8
Bentonite......1.9

and I've been using a low fire, bought boxed clay
