Glaze Tests: Round II

I’m doing another round of testing, except this time on a new clay body. The translucent porcelain I’ve used before was a really nice clay, a little short, but most of my glaze tests crazed. I found out how to doctor a glaze to prevent crazing but I’d like to try another clay body, which is called vitreous porcelain. I’m using some new glazes and some old ones. It will be interesting to see how they turn out on this new clay body. Stay tuned.

Glaze Test 3/1/13

Last week I did my first round of glaze tests on a ^6 translucent clay body. I used 4 different base glazes and added different stains to them. I still have a long way to go but I am happy with what I’ve discovered so far!
