A very rough glaze; not intended for food surfaces. Fine silicon carbide seems to work best. For a gray to black variation, add 7% Mason stain 6600.

    Can anyone clarify the percentage of Silicon Carbide?
    I’ve seen this in three other locations and they list it as .34% vs 34%

    I’m not a mathematician but it seems like a big difference.

    Thx

    BTW – is this going to coat the kiln with little black dots of glaze as the CO2 off gasses?

    Do you need to use a Sagr?
