Potters & Sculptors - Making Rock from Mud
I too was looking for the Bailey's Red recipe. I realize that I owned the "Glazes Cone 6" book by Michael Bailey and that recipe might be in the book. In the book he has a chapter dedicated to a Red/Orange glaze. I suspect this is the Bailey's Red that Steven Hill is referring to. Below is the recipe.
One interesting note about the Steven Hill glaze list that came with his DVD. I was talking with a potter who had the good luck of taking Steven Hill's week long class at the John Campbell Folk school. He told me that Steven mentioned to the class that there was a typo in one of the recipes. In the "Hanna's Fake Ash" recipe, the percentage for the colorant Bentonite is suppose to be 1.1% Not 10%. Good luck.
Here is the Bailey's Red recipe:
Potash Feldspar 46.7
China Clay 4
Bone Ash 15
Lithium Carbonate 4
Flint or quartz 11.4
Red Iron Oxide 11.5
I just saw your note about Hanna's Fake Ash from Steven Hills DVD, and when making up a card with the correction I realized that the materials recipe itself actually doesn't add up to 100% (it totals 122.7). Do you have the correct numbers?
See the discussion:
Do you have any information about food safety with Stephen Hill's Glazes? Specifically, Strontium Crystal Magic, (Cool and Warm versions), SH Watercolor Blue and Green? I notice he uses these on the outside of mugs up to the edge of the drinking vessels, which obviously implies oral contact with these glazed surfaces.
