VideoVideo: Turquoise/red, G31 powder, 1 kg
950°C/1742°F - 1000°C/1832°F.
This glaze is mentioned under G31 in our book Rakuvaria 2.
This glaze gives off many variations so you can create many colours with this glaze.
If you want turquoise as outcome: take the work out of the hot kiln and leave it to cool for a long time, then place the work on sawdust and don’t put any sawdust on the glaze.
If you want a coppery outcome: take the work out of the hot kiln and cool it for a short time, then place the work on sawdust and throw lots of sawdust on it.
It happens a lot that when you place your work in the sawdust too soon, the outcome will have raw glaze marks.
The strong cooling transforms the liquid treacly glaze into a hard glassy layer.
The sawdust will bite itself in the tough glaze when work is placed in the reduction barrel too soon.
Raw spots will mostly be found in places where glaze comes into contact with sawdust.
