Bonsecour Bronze Glaze

Copper Oxide 16 units
Frit 3134 8   units
EPK Kaolin 12 units
Manganese Dioxide 64 units

I add these ingredients to approximately 400ml water.

I also ensure that I stir the mix well before applying with a brush.

 I use a stiff brush and sort of stipple the glaze on bisque ware.

The glaze is a strong contaminant, so, be sure to clean your glazing area well after use.

This glaze works best on iron based clay.  However, I also use it on porcelain, but it must be applied well.

I also apply the glaze to green ware.
The original recipe was for cone two.  I fire to cone 6.   Better results are at cone two.
