Instructions

This is a flexible glaze that does well in both cooler and hotter spots in the kiln. It breaks nicely over edges. As the iron content of mined yellow ochre is inconsistent, testing percentage for color is recommended. I love using this glaze together with Pete’s Strontium Matte for the liveliness arising from the contrast between glossy and matte, warm and cool.
