Specific gravity: 1.43. Stony Earth Glaze has an earthy brown and green color, with simple ingredients. No extra red iron oxide was added for the base test. Additions of red iron oxide from 2% and up resulted in an overall dark brown gloss. My tests with red iron oxide added in increments from 1–5% made the glaze darker, and finally a dull brown gloss with 5%.

Forshammer feldspar is a combined soda and potash feldspar. In the US, test with Custer feldspar, Minspar 200 feldspar, and a 50/50 mix of Custer feldspar and Minspar 200 feldspar.
