Louis,  here's my firing schedule:

6 segments...

1. 200/0-250 (no hold)

2. 400/0-1000 (no hold)

3. 180/0-1150 (no hold)

4. 300/0-1985 (no hold)

5. 108/5 - 2180 (hold 5 minutes)

6. 150 - 1500 (final)

The guy at Skutt suggested that schedule specifically for waterfall brown and it worked great for me.  Also, I am using cone 6 porcelain and it says in the Mastering Cone 6 book that waterfall isn't good on porcelain, but it seems to work for me.  I think maybe cone 6 porcelain isn't really "true" porcelain, but what do I know.

When I get to the studio I will post the firing schedule I use.

Beautiful do you fire it? (cone5 with a hold?)  My waterfall runs badly.  Someone recently made a batch of green rutile and I hated it by itself but will definitely try this combo....THANKS!

Very nice

That's just waterfall brown with a thick glob of Rutile Green painted on the rim.  That's one of my favorite combinations.
