I like to try different colorants in glazes.  I usually start with a good Clear I trust.  If it then acts up, I can be confident the additions caused the problem and adjust accordingly.

 

My favorite is

 

Clear Gloss

cone 8-10 redux or ox.

Viscous, predictable glaze.  Good for classrooms and/or a second layer of glaze since it doesnt run much.  Turn matt glazes to gloss with a top coat of this glaze.  (one quick dip color glaze, dry, then 1 dip Clear Gloss.)

 

Ball Clay (Kentucky Ball works well)  10

Whiting    20

Flinit 30

Custer Feldspar 40

 

This is the base the makes the Blindingly Bright Green found at  http://www.websitetoolbox.com/tool/post/clayarts/vpost?id=1263588

 

This is a tried and true glaze.  I have personally used it in large gas kiln, little gas kiln and electric kiln with a cone sitter.
