Glaze Mixtures

Two glaze mixtures I did for my directed studies. One was called Sea Foam (right tile), and one was Chinese Blue/Green (left tile). I named my developed glazes West Coast Sea Foam and Paul’s Blue/Green.

The WCSF seemed to be a pretty flat glaze, but was able to get some interesting and varied results on the same surface when applied to two of my mugs (top right photo). Where I brushed it on a bit thinner, there is a bit of a greenish stain coming through. I also enjoyed the speckled, grainy look to the glaze. I am also very happy with the PBG, it has very interesting colour variation when used in a runny way, which I enjoy. The two bottom pictures of the PBG.
