I am playing with Shinos to see the variety available in this glaze. I will post all of my shinos here along with photos as soon as possible. Please share any new ones by replying to this topic.

The old reliable, classic shino:

Shaner's Shino
Cone 10 redux

Nepheline Syenite 38.61
Spodumene 29.70
Kaolin 4.95
Ball Clay 16.83
Bentonite 1.98
Soda Ash 7.92

Re: Shino
Red Shino
Cone 10 redux
Red Orange Shino (apply thin)

Nepheline Syenite 40
Spodumene 30
Ball Clay 17
Soda Ash 8
Kaolin 5
---------
 
Re: Shino
I have not tried this one yet. I can't believe it will work because it has no complexity, but I plan to try it. I will post results. 
 
UPDATE:  Too rough for any functional use.  Nice on sculptural work if very, very thin.  Too thick and it peals with sharp edges.  Generally, I did not like it, but I keep seeing it in magazines, so I thought I should leave it here as a warning.

Carbon Trap Shino
Shiny Cone 10 redux (designed for porcelain)

Ball Clay 50
Soda Ash 50

Re: Shino
This one was clipped from Ceramics Monthly. I have not tried it yet because the ingredients are so particular (and peculiar).

Hank's Shino Glaze - Crawling Shino by Hank Murrow
Orange where thin, crawling, broken white where thick
Cone 10 reduction then oxidation

Cryoline 0.6
Nepheline Syenite 55.4
Low Melt Spodumene 18.0
McNamee Kaolin 26.0
add Veegum T 1.0
 
-----------
 
Malcolm Davis Shino
Cone 10 Redux

Nepheline Syenite 40.91
Soda Ash 17.27
Kona F-4 Soda Feldspar 9.82
Edgar Plastic Kaolin 18.18
Om #4 Kentucky Ball Clay 13.82


Malcolm Davis is an amazing potter who has developed a number of carbon trap shinos. He does seminars which include his shinos. If anyone has attended one of his seminars and can share a few bits of Shino wisdom, I would love to read it.

This is my other shino clipped from Ceramics Monthly:

Moon Rocks Shino
cone 10 redux

Soda Ash 10.01
Potash Feldspar 45.64
Spodumene 38.04
EPK 6.31

This recipe came from the article, Shino Analysis by Tom Buck. Last I checked, the article is available online at ceramicsmonthly.org/mustreads. I have no idea what "Moon Rocks Shino" means which is why it is on my "try this" list. I will post pictures ASAP.

Shino changes dramatically with clay types and location in the kiln.  I found some photos I thought I would share.  Rather than mixing three different shinos, use the one glaze for multiple works. 

 

All of these photos are with the same BATCH of Shaner's Shino:

 

Shaner's Shino Cone 10 redux
Nepheline Syenite 38.61
Spodumene 29.70
Kaolin 4.95
Ball Clay 16.83
Bentonite 1.98
Soda Ash 7.92

 

First Photo:  Shaners on b-mix fired next to a copper red glaze.  Fumes from the copper glaze were absorbed by shino in the same way shino "carbon traps"

 

Second Photo:  Shaners doing its carbon trap trick.  The piece was at the very top of the downdraft kiln where more smoke gathers.  The ball lid was fired lower in the kiln making a nice orange contast to the black carbon trap.

 

Third Photo:  Same glaze on death valley clay.  Lovely red.
