Test 26 was a matt glaze good for oxides. Not great but the glaze was really thick – should re-test with more water
Test 25 was meant to be a clear but is a nice white matt
Test 24 Was thick again and wants to start crawling
Test 23 meant to be a wide firing clear base glaze which is ok but on Keanes red terracotta changes to a slight green tinge – needs to be retested with more water added
Test 22 is another clear that is ok and needs to be re-tested with more water to get rid of gas bubbles
Test 21 is my favourite – its a great crawl glaze I can’t wait to use somewhere!!
All tests were done on Keanes red terracotta, Keanes terracotta and MQF
Sues test which I loved was TAFEs celadon with 1% cobalt fired at cone 6. It has lovely speckles and a green blue kind of look and is a little satin.
Tests of Keanes red terracotta and terracotta with Crysanthos clear. Great glaze that if I am going to start buying a clear glaze this would be it!!
Shrinkage was 12.2%
Porosity was 2.38%
Amy's mid fire white test. Not the nicest clay, the shrinkage bar warped a bit… bit of a dead end this one…
Shrinkage is 11.2%
Porosity is 0.68%
Amy's mid fire brown. Nice to use and is a light brown colour.
