This is the GA27 glaze as above but put over the iron under cote from the oil spot glaze on this page.This gives a dark brown to black that has life in it as the iron bleeds thru. from the under cote, so other possibilities are there as in a red stain added to the under glaze? cone 6 electec

Iron oil spot ^6 This is a two part glazing with the oil spot cover glaze from above going on top of the following.: 48 Feldspar ( potash / kali ) + 24 Silica + 17 Whiting (krijt) + 11 China Clay ( kaolin ) + 10 red iron oxide. This should not soak to long at top temp. I set my oven to 1215 for this glaze and cool off quickly so no ramp down.
50/50 Porcelain/wola. glaze ^6 This is my wonder glaze for 1220c. It has a soft satin shine that is not harsh at all.There is a trick to it!!!. You have to first go out and buy a block of low temp. porcelain clay. (1250c not 1300c ) Cut it up and dry. Then make a mix of 50 % of the dry porcelain and 50 % Wollastonite, by weight. Blend it up well and use.I have put it on real thick once and it gives the best small crackle. Also looks good with a hint of a color oxide in. Normal soak time i use is 35 min.
Glaze 25/9/05 satin mat ^6 Name: 25/9/05. This glaze is one that i have used since my academy days.This is a glaze that will make a pot silky to the touch. It gives a durable finish and looks good on porcelain work. You have different see thru efects depending on how thick it is as you see on the test. 47 Feldspar ( Potsah / kali ) + 18 China clay + 22 Whiting ( krijt ) + 4 Zinc oxide + 5 Flint. A good glaze for covering slips or slip trailing.
Here are the glazes i use at the moment for my work but as always you must do a small test on all glaze recipes, to see you like the results , before mixing a large batch .I will keep adding to this file as time permits.
