*Substitute Minspar 200 for the Kona F-4 feldspar. Original recipe from Cary Hulin’s Holmes County Pottery. Empire Slip is an Albany Slip substitute. This glaze is silky, like chocolate milk. It’s a joy to work with in the gas kiln or the wood kiln. It’s very stable, reliable, and works well under iron brushwork.
