Does anyone have any great base glaze recipe for an electric kiln at cone 5-6 that I can mix my own colorants with? I haven't found one yet that I am satisfied with. I do appreciate it!


G200 Feldspar 20
Ferro Frit 3134 20
Wollastonite 10
EPK 20
Talk 11.5
Silica 18.5

Its a clear gloss. 1.0 cobalt added makes a light blue about 6.0 rutile adds a nice bit of opacity.

I would love to hear about cone 6 glazes you have tried.

These are all great glossy glazes that I believe I got from Studio Potter Magazine on-line (a great web page).  I've been looking for a very long time and I thank y'all for your help in my search.  I hope that this helps you as well.
