    If I recall this is a slow cool schedule. Extremely variable depending on schedule of cooling rate from seriously blah grey or brownish-beige to just amazing red with black specks. Worth working on playing with your cooling times & stages

    Can you please provide some more info:
    How is it applied (sprayed thin/thick, brushed, dipped…)
    Firing schedule? Cooling?
    I tried for many years to get this red and I get UGLY brown.
