Partially and fully opacified matte glaze at cone 6

Tuesday 30th April 2019

The glaze is G1214Z matte base and the clay is M390. 5% zircopax was added to the glaze on the left (normally 10% or more is needed to get full opacity, the partially opaque effect highlight contours well). 5% tin oxide was add to the one on the right (tin is a more effective, albeit expensive opacifier in oxidation, often only 4% is needed). The PLC6DS firing schedule was used.
