NotesCovers very well to produce a transparent amber glass. Ball mill to remove iron specks if needed. This is an excellent base glaze for many dark colors. It is also an excellent liner glaze for dark burning clays, it looks better than a transparent.
If crazing occurs (you need to look closely for it) switch to frit 3249 low expansion frit.

- Login to a private account or work with others in a group account (e.g. university).
- Nothing to install (access it using your web browser). It is always the latest version.
- Import existing material, recipe data.
- As many side-by-side recipes and/or materials as you want (chemistry is shown for all).
- Many ways to search and classify glaze and body recipes.
- Glaze and body recipes are robust, with units-of-measure, pictures with individual titles and descriptions, material links.
- Add variations to a recipe; each with its own pictures, descriptions and name/code-number extensions.
