PS. I have not gotten my glazed pieces back from the kiln yet, but will publish them as soon as I do:>)
As Simon says:
Pat, Enjoy your website!
Like you, I ordered a sample pack of the new Coyote glazes. I just got the pack of 12 new Shino glazes and a pint each of Gunmetal green and Croc Blue. I tried layering each in various combinations on a white porcelain slip cast form (quick to turn out and I'm not emotionally attached to them if the glaze is a failure) and on cut slices of the buff clay I use for throwing.
The glazes and combinations are given below. One or two were quite interesting; the Croc blue seems to give that mocha crystaline flowers effect when overlaid on (only) the Leopard shino.
Front rows: Cone 6 white porcelain slip cast vases.
Back rows: Aardvark buff cone 6 clay test forms.
Bisque fired to cone 04
Single dip glazed (3 second immersion) down to foot in first Coyote cone 6 glaze. Rims/necks of vases then dipped in a Coyote second glaze.
Glaze firing: cone 6 oxidation in electric kiln.
