Naples-Wagner Satin Clear (cone 1-2)

Notes:

  1. The Naples-Wagner Satin Clear Glaze should be used at a density of 1.44.

  2. In order to get as much satin as possible out of this glaze, it’s best to fire your kiln DOWN. Crystals grow on the cooling cycle between 1900-1400 degrees. I use a final ramp in my firing program that allows for 100 degrees/hour from 1900-1400.

This glaze is to be used on pots with texture but no slip. My black iron oxide step (used with the pots covered in colored slips) isn’t necessary here. Just bisque the textured pots to cone 06 and use this glaze directly.

Pilchers White Slip (Cone 06-10) Ball Clay:  25 EPK:  25 Flint:  25 Cornwall Stone:  12.5 Neph Sy:  12.5 TOTAL:  100% Add: Zircopax:  5 Frit 3124: 5 Coloring Pilchers Slip: 10% stain is the basic rule of thumb for coloring slip. I’ve found this to be about right in most cases of using mason stains. When using heavy metals like black iron or copper or cobalt, use much less. I use 4.5% copper for green and 3% black iron for brown. You only need .5-2% cobalt for blue.
