Temp Testing the Glazes...Yields Some Unusual Results.

I am having fun right now challenging my glazes to a temperature duel. I am breaking all the rules and under firing and over firing each glaze and I am quite pleased with the results! I am keeping strict records of temp of when the coating begins to melt. My blue Charlotte's were under fired by 200 degrees. Some of my scarabs were over fired by 50 degrees...must be careful here, or have a puddle of glaze on my slab shelf.

I have been able to repeat two of the glaze firings and got the same result....yeah, cause the effect is drop dead gorgeous...if I do say so myself:) All gold and flashes of light blues and pinks, turquoise...just wonderful!

  1. What glaze did you use for the blue charlottes?---LOOVE the turquoise color.
