low fire crawl glaze

updated thu 30 dec 99

from Lana Wilson's book I learnt to create such a glaze at ^6 by adding up
to 50% Magnesium carbonate to a favorite glaze.
As trying to do it at low fire I added once 30% to a favorite base glaze.
That firing was to 1040C
In the plate it was partly nice crawl (probably where it was thick) and
partly just a dry glaze. The next time I added 50% and the results were not
too good. I suggest to try it in any GOOD base for low fire, to test it
with an add of: 10, 20 and 30% Magnesium carb. If you want color, use
artificial colorant.
good luck
And happy new year to all of us!

Steven Goldate of ceramic guide suggested I contact you for a recipe for a
fire crawl glaze.
Would you have one that you can share?
Thanks, Melody
