When I started with pottery, I have immediately fallen in love with making glazes.
I love to look for recipes, to read the comments and to decide on which glaze to test.
I love to mix the ingredients, I feel like a chemist, but since I am not, I sometimes make mistakes. Till today, my mistakes are not as bad as could be in real chemistry, only changes in colors, or texture.
To the Goodrich Honey Green glaze, I add 10 times cobalt oxide… it became a very nice dark blue, somewhat "inkish".
The original Goodrich Honey Green is a real honey green.
To the Ron Roy's Nutmeg glaze, I added 10 times Rio, it came out silky matte, dark brown, not so bad either…
The original glaze is different than it should be, because I fire up to 1180 Celsius. It is dry, sandy, and beautiful.
