I think you could spray the blue-amber and then spray a light coat of the white liner and then sponge on some more white liner. I think it would work. But you know how they say to test, test, test!

Jeff one thing that I failed to mention was the fact that I sponge on an irregular

top coat with an small natural sea sponge.

Creamy White Liner

G-200     20.0

FF 3134  20.0

Wollastonite  15.0

EPK   20.0

Talc  6.0

Silica   19.0

Add Tin Oxide   4.0


Custer   30.27

Whiting  25.65

Silica  36.53

EPK  7.55

Add RIO  11.66

  On this one I did away with the RIO & added Cobalt Carb.  W/O my notes I would say about 1-2 %.   I sprayed on the Blue/Amber first & then sprayed on the Creamy white Liner.

Hi Randy & Tori,

    Here are a couple of the pots that I used the combo on.  I wanted more white & more intermixing like Randy is getting.  Also the aventurine that I put on the rims didn't do what I wanted either.  If you want I can post the recipes.

Thanks.  I am always searching for those spectacular patterned glazes.  Great.  Always look forward

to experimenting and trying something different.

Fetish Ghost has a glaze combo that he calls Bone Marrow that is his White Liner over his Amber. I have been working on modifying the Amber to blue and then put the white liner over that. It isn't quite where I want it, but it is progressing. I will try and find a pic. Also I could find the recipes of you guys want to fiddle with it, too.

I have never been able to produce this effect in oxidation with one glaze.  I fired Floating Blue without iron oxide to C6 then applied a heavy sponged coat of FB base with rutile, tin,  and copper carb then fired again to C6.  Quick up and down.  No holds.  If you do just one firing you will get the varigation you see, but probably will turn an olive green pattern glaze.  You will just have to try it and see.  I am going to try some experiments to see if I can get it in one firing.  I have been trying to find this glaze effect in ox for 30 years and just came across it trying to corrects some mistakes.

I love that glaze.  What glaze are you using on this piece?
