Ah sweet sweet chaos

I really like the Val's Turquoise Matte, so I decided to try it with different oxides. The results surprised me a little.

Val's Matte with RIO.



Again I am using my camera phone so the picture kind of sucks. The glaze has a lot of movement. More than any other oxide. It cleared a little, it's not as matte. It's a very pretty pale yellow.

Val's Matte with Chrome.



A wonderful mottled green with yellow-ish spots. A truly unexpected surprise.

Val's Matte with Manganese Dioxide.



It doesn't come through in the picture but it's a wonderful matte dark burgundy.

Val' Matte with Nickel Carbonate.



This one was a disappointment. I was hoping for a purple, I got a nasty tan.
