My new glaze is disappointing. It is transparent but I will add opacifier tomorrow and re-fire the pots to cone 1. The painting I am working on is troubling. We'll look at it tomorrow too. I don't understand why I can't mix silica, clay and borate in a ratio suitable for cone 8. It really doesn't make sense. I think that tomorrow I will start anew with equal parts Si, clay and borate. I have some soup bowls in the partially loaded kiln with virtually all of the ready glazes on them, I think I will throw all the dirt glazes together to release a bucket and make a new 80/20 dirt glaze so the bisqued bowls can be done before Christmas. Looking forward to it.
