You would think having worked at the cone 6 range I'd have a liner glaze
recipe. Well I don't. Any suggestions?

You know I speak highly of that book, and I've used several of
its glazes with excellent results over differing bodies ... but
the clear liner is one that I've had trouble with (crazing).
I don't think I'm the only one to have had the problem, either,
as John H. has posted subs for the glaze for folks who have
There're lots of alternatives to that clear liner. Hansen's
5 x 20 is one that's clear if you don't add colorants, generally
fits fairly well, and doesn't seem too sensitive to slightly
off-perfect firings. It's just slightly different than the MC6G
clear liner. Ian Begg's Clear is very consistent, but cloudy where
thick. It will craze over some bodies, though. I'm really fond of
the T14 Base from Bailey's "Glazes Cone 6" and I don't often fit
problems with it. I note, however, that it's got a solubilities
issue -- Lithium Carb, which I find makes for sometimes inconsistent
You may find it worth a try, though. The recipe is
Recipe Name: T14
Cone: 6 Color:
Firing: Surface: Semiglossy
70 Soda Feldspar (Kona or other)
5 Zinc Oxide
3 Lithium Carbonate
