Test the glazes under a ^6 clear hi calcium no zinc glaze.

DON'T mix. That sounds like a disaster waiting to happen.

I got a bunch of ^06 stuff (Duncan, Mayco, Ceramichrome) at a garage sale.

They make awsome underglazes but....TEST, TEST, TEST.

I mentioned this in a previous post. In my opinion, the duncan Amaze-a-Glaze

and Mayco One Strokes are brighter and truer than some amaco underglazes

under my ^6 clear glaze. I've painted on greenware to set and painted on bisque

ware. Try applying over the fired ^6 glaze and fire down to ^06. Play with it.

If it's cheap do it. Nothing ventured.........

Have Fun,

Gotta run, kids on the roof
