Multiple notes, multiple pictures, variations, and firing schedules.  This is what the Insight-Live Glaze recipe database is all about. A single place where the accumulated knowledge about a glaze can be accessed and updated.

I would really like a glaze program that would allow me to add photos of additional glaze firings to allow for a better understanding of color variations and a possibility to update firing notes.

This glaze is beautiful, I'm anxiously waiting for it to turn up!  I've tried different ways of tracking and recording my glazes so eventually put them into a scribbler and indexed them for easy referral.  Not sure what I'll do when I run out of pages.  I do like the Insight trial we are doing and really like the way we can look for a glaze by photo and collaborate with others to get more info about a particular glaze.

It is embarrassing to say that I can't find the recipe at the moment, it is on a scrap of paper and my studio is a mess. When I find it I will post it.
