Greetings low fire fans. I just pulled some pieces outta the kiln, red
earthenware with white glaze inside, and I had painted some things over
the glaze, but b/c I used a brush-on commercial glaze, I had uneven
coverage and didn't get the look I wanted. I need to make my own, such
that I can dip the pieces for even coating. I need a recipe without
tin, because I might use some chrome-bearing underglazes for painting
on, and I don't wanna end up w/ pink instead of white. =-O
If you have such a glaze, please share. Thanks in advance.

The maiolica glaze I use came out of Matthias Ostermann's book "the New
Miaolica". It's really good and uses Zirconium Oxide.
I don't have the receipe with me but can send it tomorrow. Basically,
it's Frit 3124, 3195, some silica, some ball clay, some kaolin and some
Zirconium Oxide. The receipe calls for a very small ammount of whiting
but I've left it out and it doesn't seem to make any difference.
BTW I'll send you the pictures of your mugs this weekend.
