5 lbs. Marble Shino Cone 10 Reduction
Description: Rich peach, gold and orange color with carbon trapping. We've seen this glaze create anything from a soft marble haze to a full-out marbleized carbon trapping around 80% of the form. We've applied it onto Coleman Porcelain and Faith Hill Porcelain.
Mixing: One order equals 5 lbs of material. This shino doesn't need to be boiled. It's best to add water and mix right before using this glaze. The soda ash is best in the formula when it hasn't had a chance to melt down all the way. Screen 1 time thru an 80 mesh screen. 50-52 on a hydrometer. Shown here over a cone 10 porcelains. We DO NOT recommend putting this glaze (or any of our glazes) over BMIX. It has dirty ingredients that interrupt the flow of our glazes during the firing process.
Application: Spray like you would a normal shino. Maybe 3 rotations. Not too thick. A thin to medium application works well in most kilns when fired to cone 10 with good reduction.
Cover with a Plastic Sheet to slow down the Soda Ash from coming to the surface. On one of Tom's bottles he covered it with a sheet for 2 weeks. Then, had it uncovered for a while after that before the kiln was loaded and fired.
Loading and Firing Instructions: Fired in cone 10 reduction. Fire this Shino in a normal reduction atmosphere.
ImportantNote: Remember to run a few tests before applying any unfamiliar slip orglaze to lots of work. Take notes. Find the correct application for your work with the way your kiln is being fired.
