Not sure of how I glazed the inside of this bowl. Layered combo of C Harris Temoku, Nutmeg, Variegated Slate Blue, Juicy Fruit, and a little Water Color Green. At the middle of the sides glaze is transparent and has crazed. On Laguna B-Mix 5 on a shelf that went to cone 5.2

Kathy, I use Harbor Freight HVLP gravity fed guns. I have three of them. See the discussion Spraying Glazes and my comment there on the guns. Because I am spraying an abrasive coating I don't feel it best to buy expensive guns that will be subject to the same kind of wear that the cheaper guns will undergo. Glaze solids will settle out and clog all guns but the gravity guns provide an easy way to declog and resuspend at least most of the glaze, without pouring everything out and cleaning.

Juicy Fruit and some of the other recipes you want are in the Steven Hill Oxidation Project pages - Companion glazes and the SCM has its own discussion.

Very nice!

Thank you, Randy. It was totally unexpected to have that patterning develop in the bottom, as I was spraying with a large spray gun. Pretty amazing interaction going on there, and I don't know if I'll ever see anything similar.
