5 lbs. Cabat Turquoise Satin-Matt Cone 10 Oxidation
Description: This is the turquoise we've been trying to get for years. And, it has lots of beautiful little crystal formations in the sun. It reminds us of Rose Cabat's "Feelies" A velvety, brilliant surface. Her glaze formulas weren't published. But, we knew we had something close to her glazes when this came out of the kiln. We'll be testing for more vibrant colors in the months to follow. This glaze is best on the outside of a cup or bowl and we recommend using a celadon type glaze for the liner glaze where your pottery comes into contact with food. We have a new Spring Celadon for cone 10 oxidation we'll be testing as a liner for this glaze in the next firing.
Mixing: Add water and screen 2 times thru an 80 mesh screen. You'll want this to be about 40 - 42 on a hydrometer.
Application: One dip gave us the lighter green (at the bottom). The second quick dip was half way down the test tube. Then, the third quick dip was on the top rim. It shifted to give us the brighter turquoise where it's a bit thicker to the bright green where it's applied thinner. Our next step is to glaze larger work.
Firing: Cone 10 in an electric kiln (oxidation).
Note: Remember to always test any unfamiliar slip or glaze on test work and wait before you put anything unfamiliar onto any important work.
