Yum, new glazes!

I tried some new glazes…

The glaze below is Mayco Semi-Opaque EL118 Blue Grotto. There are a few repel bubbles that burst while firing. I think this is because I didn’t remove all the loose clay dust before applying the glaze.

  1. These are !ovely – I also have used Mayco’s Blue Grotto and Malachite – but hte malachite came out much different.Do you fire to cone 06 or cone4-6?

    • Hi there
      Thanks for stopping by and your question.
      I use cone 06 for the first firing and 03 or 04 for the second firing.
      However, if you are using ceramic greenware with these glazes apparently you use cone 04 for the first firing and 06 for the second firing.
      These plates are also with KEANE Special K clay which has a lot of grog in it which may also create the different colours (don’t know). I am going to use these glazes again but with a different clay. Will see how that goes.
      The blue plates look very dark (almost black) in the photos on my blog. In reality they look a little more blue.
      I would be interested to learn more about what you are doing and how your glazes come out?
