This subject is most interesting to me. I do like to use color on my work--particularly BMix 5.BMix 10 and ^10 porcelaine. In reading several posts about using the stains, I didn't see gerstley borate mentioned. I, in the past, have used equal parts stain and gerstley-then mixed with water. I have not put that combo in a glaze but have used clear glaze over it. I will love trying something different.

I am planning some outdoor projects and want to make them VERY colorful.

So much to be learned from Clayart !!!
