A while back Jim Romberg posted a Raku glaze
called "Gun Metal". I mixed it up a couple of
times with great results, but the last two times
it will not mature. Has anyone else had a problem
with it, or did the recipe get mixed up somehow.
Here is the one I'm using:


Gerstley Borate 3 parts
Neph. Sy. 2 parts
Copper Carb. 3 parts
Red Iron Ox. 3 parts
