C6 Triaxial Blend. Robin’s Egg Blue, Bermuda Green, Cobalt Carb.

Here was a basic triaxial blend we did in my Celadon Glaze class. Essentially you’re mixing proportions of 3 different colorants in a systematic way. I recommend mixing 3 x 300g cups of a base formula

For our class, we used the base recipe:

Cone 6 Wide Firing Clear

Kona Feldspar 38

Whiting 14

Zinc Oxide 12

OM4 Ball Clay 15

Silica 30

_____________________

After mixing up 3 cups of your base recipe, choose your oxide or mason stain colorants. Mix them in and sieve.  Make yourself a chart, or follow this example:

Our 3 Colorants were Robin’s Egg Blue, Bermuda Green, and Cobalt Carbonate. The picture is self explanatory. (Note: We screwed up #11  either by adding in 80% C instead of B, or just dipping into cup #10 2x)

    • My pleasure! Because it has zinc it doesn’t always play nice with certain mason stains, but mostly it’s fine. Apply this glaze THICK for best results!
