Glaze Type: Iron saturate
source: Michael Bailey, Glazes Cone 6 This is a "kaki" (plum) saturated iron red.
It can be a brilliant red-orange with just the right amount of iron. It does
better if you do a controlled cooling as it is a crystalline glaze and needs the
slow cool for the crystals to grow (fast cool will yield a chocolate brown
gloss).You have to do a line blend on this one to get it right as iron oxides are
never the same. I use Spanish red iron oxide. Generally increments of 1% RIO will
be fine. But, you really need to do the line blend to get the best red and to
fully appreciate the range of colors in that small range of RIO additions.
