The case of Forbes Green and Straw on a dark clay body and in what order.
I tried those combos in different orders. many times. on Toast clay
on light colored Raku clay
FF to breakthrough!!
Forbes BLUE + Straw on Klamath Brown clay. oh joy!
I thought this was the true combo of original pot.
This was a messed up glazing of basically the same combo on Klamath. FBlue + Straw.The back part came similar, but can’t be official since I did some heavy scraping when the straw went on so thick. (Flat part had no blue. Lower vertical did have blue, but major scraping.)
This Friday’s kiln open gave me another thought.
Forbes Green back in play + Straw on this cup of cuteness. also Klamath Brown.
Looking pretty darn like Exhibit A. Both colors were sticking thick during glazing and one (I think Kjell said FGreen) seemed to have Epsom salts in it. (The little shadow part was ROatmeal on top i/o Straw. more on that later.)
BUT, Ann said this cup was 2 x Forbes Green. Showing out its blue side, on a white clay body.
So I’m thinking it has got to go on thick. Both glazes.
Ilana tried FBlue + Straw on this KBrown tray. The difference from my vase being horizontal v. vertical. So less breaking?
As usual, the glazes were likely of different batch mixes, much time has passed for the life of this story, and every kiln firing is different because of placement within kiln, etc.
