Robbie’s Y altered

Robbie’s Y altered

Firing temperature : cone 8 | Surface texture : glossy | Color : cobalt blue | Atmosphere: Oxidation/Neutral

This glaze gives a nice gloss and holds colour well. I have altered Robbie's Y by substituting some of the ingredients that are more readily available to me.

The surface is lovely and glossy but not too glossy (could be more matt if fired lower). Drips are highly visible. Doesn't run and has the potential to grow interesting micro crystals on the surface so I will be doing some experimentation with firing for this.
