Experimenting a bit

Just to show you I do use straight glaze colors sometimes without mixing them.
And here's my experiment.

I did some test tiles to come up with a pale turquoise, and this is the result.  Bermuda Green mason stain from Highwater mixed about 2 oz dry into a wet batch (about 1/2 gallon) of Satin White.  It's much lighter than our celadon.  And I haven't tried it on stoneware yet, just on the white clay.  There are a few speckles of darker color, but it doesn't pit, is evenly spread, and doesn't break very much on the grooves.

More tests to follow.  I like the glacier or ice berg quality this gives.

Looking forward to hearing from you! Since I didn't know the 1000+ people who supposedly looked at my blog the other day, I'm back to moderating comments. If that doesn't help, I don't know why blogger doesn't have a filter that stops this hacking...
