Pottery- Glaze- Rutile Blue.-Cone 9-10

Cone 9-10 high firing 1300 Reduction.

The way you apply this glaze, is all about the colour you get.

Dip, Brush On .,Pour Over.

How hot the kiln is. Each shelf can give you different colour.

One side of the kiln might be hotter than the other. Colour will be a brown.

This is the colour from brush on.

I fine that brushing on a glaze you get nice colours from brush on.
