Blue-Green/Copper Red Glaze

Blue-Green/Copper Red Glaze

Firing temperature : Cone 6 | Surface texture : glossy | Color : medium green | Atmosphere: Oxidation/Neutral Reduction

Like most copper red glazes, if this is fired in oxidation it will be green rather than red (because the copper will not reduce and will therefore refract light differently).

If you're firing this glaze in reduction to acheive a red color, it benefits from being covered with clear glaze; it helps reduce burning out of the red if there are variations in the atmosphere.
