comments: NOTE that recipe is in parts - not stated whether that's
parts by weight or volume This is to LJ in Alexandria and anyone else
interested in raku glazes. We have been using these two glazes along
with white crackle and copper wash and have gotten VERY NICE results.
Apply 1 coat. Stie glaze with each brush stroke to keep rutile in
suspension. Our raku kiln is fired between 1830 and 1900 degrees.
Reduce in very heavy pine needles, broken pine cones and some
sawdust. The surface effect is like a 100 grit sandpaper. Colors
range from a silver blue to silver/bronze with flashes of color that
can run the full spectrum. Lots of bright teal and purple with halos
of fuschia and mustard. Every now and then I get splotches of tomato
red! Can be refired over and over until you love it or ugly it too

Comments:

I saw a woman firing raku, five years ago or so, using this glaze and
it came out a lovely burgundy matt. I just recently got my raku kiln
up and running and my first try with this recipe yielded a glossy
green:-? It was suggested to me to fire it to a lower temp and to
reduce it in a smaller chamber. At any rate, this is the recipe and
any other suggestions to make it work would be welcome. I fire this
on dark stoneware (Death Valley) from [email protected]

On that copper Raku vein going on I thought I should throw in my two
cents worth. I like this glaze because it is a little shiny and no
pocket squeezing cobalt. Fire a little hotter (I don't raku with
cones, so I keep an eye on when it 'slicks off' good) or it does a
bizzare bubbly green mess that won't reduce. submitted by: Barbara

Comments:

This is a matt copper if pulled fast. pulled slow results in a matt
interesting effect. If you put one /two coats of copper sand and over
that add rainbow , pull very fast you will get a beautiful glossy
multicolored effect. I fire this on dark stoneware (Death Valley)

comments: This is to LJ in Alexandria and anyone else interested in
raku  glazes. We have been using these two glazes along with white
crackle and copper wash and have gotten VERY NICE results. This glaze
is a very pretty turquiose crackle that turns to copper penny luster
with heavy reduction. Apply 4 coats with brush over white stoneware
(we use Miller 510). The glaze tends to crawl if applied too thin.
Again reduce with pine needles and shredded paper if flashing is
desired. If not, I pedestal my piece and use only shredded paper to
avoid scarring. Quench with hose to bring about crackle. source for

can also use Black Iron Oxide. I, too, am restricted to an electric
kiln and a Raku garbage can kiln in the backyard. Using the Raku kiln
for reduction (closing the damper and tiger torch port completely
after seeing the glaze melt), I have produced some greenish blue
celadon-like bowls. Similar results have been obtained with a
straight forward raku firing.. Try the following which is more or
less a cone 08 glaze and can be easily modified. submitted by:

Comments:

7mls. of dissolved solution (below) = 1.50 grams (less stable)Silver
nitrate is poison and corrosive. In solution, if spilled, it stains
the surface a revolting liver colour forever. If splashed on hands or
skin...liver again for many weeks. Rehearsal for age spots. Crystals
are the way to go. Silver nitrate crystals are weighed by grams and
added to distilled water. The ratio is one gram to 10 mls of water.
So 5 grams go into 50 mls. etc. Store the dissolved solution in a
coloured bottle and keep it out of light. When measuring the solution
to be added to your glaze WEAR RUBBER GLOVES,CLOTHING YOU HATE and
open the windows wide. This stuff doesn't smell at all but it's
powerful . Add the needed amount to the MIXED and SIEVED glaze and
stir carefully. It will make the texture of the glaze peculiar at
first, sort of curdled but keep on stirring and it will smooth out.
Wash the stirring implement thoroughly especially if it's metal. This
glaze is best painted on in three smooth coats. Use a special brush
for this glaze as it will be perm. stained black. I fire this on dark
stoneware (Death Valley) from [email protected]

Comments:

Some one on the list recently asked for a purple raku glaze. What I
thought I had here when I was mixing it was a copper matt untill I
lifted it out from under the reduction can. At first it was almost
black but inside of 15 mins it is the deepest prettiest purple I have
ever seen and I have no idea who gave the receipe to me. They sure do
deserve credit. I sprayed this on JM5, a buff colored ^5 stoneware I
had bisqued to ^08. I fired it in a small old electric I sometimes
use for raku to 1830. After pulling it we went right to a pile of
sand with 8' x8' piece of slick newspaper on the botton and as we
covered it we threw in another the same size on top of the pot,
covered it with the can sealing the edges, waited about an hour
untill it was cool enough to touch and got the purple surprise. If
someone uses this glaze I would really like to hear about their

Comments:

Add the following to the base to get purple: 4 Manganese dioxide. 1
Cobalt oxide. I am sure that the above mixture added to any base will
do the trick. The book also has many other combinations to obtain
different colors. To get dark blue, add cobalt oxide or cobalt
carbonate. John Termeulen Trenton , Ontario submitted by: John

Comments:

Use Borax Decahydrate. Here, designed by me, are two copper red matt
lustres. This one is for fresh mix daily, or dry mix and wet only
what you can use in a day. The borax is washing machine borax. Pemco
frit 830 or Hommel frit K3 will work also. Use a few drops of
detergent to disperse colorant oxides. The above glaze is quite fluid
at C07/06 and needs to be heavily reduced. Move from kiln to
reduction medium as quickly as possible and leave 20 minutes or so.
It produces brillant reds with some blue flashes. High gloss finish
most of the time. There you go. I have used these glazes with good
results. They are BTW variations of Carol Townsend's original 'Tomats

found in Chappell's book. I haven't tested it. Firing temp give as
^016-010 For silver lustres use silver nitrate in the amount of 2.1%
and soda ash in the amt of 1 gram per mix. For silver lusters with
greenish tints add chrome oxide in the amount of 1.2% to above. For
silver lusters with bluish tints use the first variation and add

Comments:

1 gram of silver nitrate is 10 mls. of the solution below ( that's
one dissolved gram) Silver nitrate is poison and corrosive. In
solution, if spilled, it stains the surface a revolting liver colour
forever. If splashed on hands or skin...liver again for many weeks.
Rehearsal for age spots. Crystals are the way to go. Silver nitrate
crystals are weighed by grams and added to distilled water. The ratio
is one gram to 10 mls of water. So 5 grams go into 50 mls. etc. Store
the dissolved solution in a coloured bottle and keep it out of light.
When measuring the solution to be added to your glaze WEAR RUBBER
GLOVES,CLOTHING YOU HATE and open the windows wide. This stuff
doesn't smell at all but it's powerful . Add the needed amount to the
MIXED and SIEVED glaze and stir carefully. It will make the texture
of the glaze peculiar at first, sort of curdled but keep on stirring
and it will smooth out. Wash the stirring implement thoroughly
especially if it's metal. This glaze is best painted on in three
smooth coats. Use a special brush for this glaze as it will be perm.

Combination of Transparent Peace and Sorta White Raku We have
variable results with this one... Most of the time it's a great
transparent crackle. It looks wonderful over dark clays and any clay
with engobe decoration etc. But sometimes it has a gnarly
texture....overfired? underfired? I fire this on dark stoneware
