With the combination of adequate silica and a higher firing temperature, the glazes seem stable so far.

Do the glazes seem stable to you? No leaching?

I use the schedule we got from SH last June. But I increased the temperature 10 degrees.

Have to try that!
Are you firing to cone 6, or higher?

Chris, sorry it took me so long to get back to you! I have two formulas for the Jenn's juicy fruit with iron. One I use 6% yellow iron oxide. In the other I use 6% crocus martis. Both give you rich results.

I will let you know when I get home. I am visiting family right now. But I have been tweeting formulas and firing schedules a little to get a richer with a couple of the glazes. Look for an email early next week.

How much yellow iron oxide did you add to the Juicy Fruit?
