I mix this clear glaze recipe in 10,000-gram batches to fill a 5-gallon bucket. This glaze fires from cone 04–6, depending on clay type used. I fire to a hot cone 2, barely bending cone 3. This temperature works well for layering glazes to achieve the runny glaze drips I desire.

For Green add: 5–8% Copper Carbonate

For Light Brown add: 5–10% Iron Oxide

For Green Ocean Spray add: 8% Copper Carbonate and 8% Rutile

For Amber add: 5–10% Burnt Umber

For other glaze colors add: 5–20% stain
