cone 6 version

Hi Kevin,

I would be interested in the Cone 6 version of this glaze receipe. I am a member of the London Potters Guild in London Ontario and I use their kilns for firing. They only go to cone 6 or at most a soft 7. I am just getting started and am having a lot of fun. I am trying to build a good set of glazes that I can use most of the time. I would eventually like to use just 5 or 6. The 'Karen Sunshine Glaze' sounds interesting and I would like to try it under Cone 6 oxidation conditions.

Thanks

Gene Timpany

Hello Llewellyn,
I used this glaze for several years. It's a very lustrous copper
turquoise, but will flash red. I got some spectacular results when
using it in combination with other copper red glazes. I doubt that is
stable, and would test for leaching before using it anything which
serves food.

Karen Starshine Cone 10
Custer Feldspar 51.00
Soda Ash 4.00
Gerstely Borate 6.00
Whiting 13.00
Strontium Carbonate 4.00
Lithium Carbonate 1.00
Silica 21.00
Add:
Titanium Dioxide 2.00
Copper Carbonate 5.00
Bentonite 3.00

There is also a Cone 6 Variation of this glaze I'd be happy to share
if anyone wants it.

Karen Starshine ^6 from Val Cushing's Glaze Book

K-200 Feldspar 46.00
Soda Ash 5.00
Gerstley Borate 12.00
Whiting 10.00
Barium Carbonate 5.00
Lithium Carbontate 2.00
Flint 20.00
Add:
Macaloid 2.00
Titanium 4.00
Copper Carbonate 5.00

I haven't tested this glaze for safety, so I wouldn't recommend it
be used for food surfaces. I' ve used it in oxidation, though the
recipe states it can be used in both reduction or oxidation. Enjoy!
