In today's video, I am sharing a clip (and a recipe) from John Britt's best-selling video Understanding Glazes. In this (much-condensed) clip, John shares his simple system for mixing up a color blend and tells us what to make of the results. Have a look and then mix up your own color blend and see what you get. - Jennifer Poellot Harnetty, editor


 

Remember: Glazing results can vary, so mix up your own color blend using this 5X20 glaze recipe and the following colorants, and see what you get!

1) Base only

 

2) Yellow Iron 2 %

3) Red Iron Oxide 3% & Titanium Dioxide 4 %.

4) Rutile 4 % and Cobalt Carbonate 1 %.

5) Zircopax 7%. 6) Chrome oxide 0.5%.
