Test results

So the new black came out beautiful. But a really really deep blue. Not really black. Still, I love it and will be keeping it in stock.

Alberta Slip 75%
F3134 25%
Cobalt Oxide 5%

I tried it with several of my normal accent glazes. The combination of this glaze with a rutile/grestly borate accents came out awesome. It produces bright gold/orange crystals with milky pale blue streaks.

On a separate note I have had problems with my ash glazes the last few kiln loads. Maybe I have a bad batch of glaze. Something is funky. They are not melting. I use witness cones and the kiln is firing perfectly but the glazes that used to melt are not melting any longer.
