Hi All,

I have seen this glaze several places.  But no one willing to share.  The sample in the pic is cone 10 gas.  I'm looking for something to fire cone5/6 electric.  I will be using it over an iron heavy red clay,  Redstone by standard.

There are several silky/satin whites that fire to cone 10. Leach white is one of them. here's a link


Now the point is to bring this down to  cone 5/6, google is your friend, but till you make friends there,here's a  white you might like

Hi Whyndham,

Thanks for the reply.  I always forget to check clayart.  Thanks.  I think I'm going to try the Pam's Frost and go from there.  I will post my results.  Will be a month or so, going on vacation.

This is my oyster glaze I use it here over white stoneware cone 6. I like how it breaks over edges. I have never used it over a dark clay but it might work.


EPK ….......................06
Dolomite …................12
Gerstley Borate .........23
Flint …......................27
Nephelene Syenite ....32

Rutile …...............8
Chrome Oxide ..0.02

Maybe you can skip the the chrome oxide I can't remember why I added it. It is a minuscule amount but you definitely need a lot of rutile and that's dark rutile. 


Thats one great looking glaze!  Thanks for sharing, and the heads up on the "dark rutile".  I only have light, but will be ordering some dark so I can test this glaze!


Tell me how it works out for you Juli. Try it with light rutile too.
