This cone six oxidation glaze is a semi-opaque blue with hints of green throughout its body. Pin-sized blue crystals can be seen on its surface and it breaks clear over texture, leaving depressions a dark, near-green. Use caution when applying this glaze, it tends to run when applied too thick. A thin coat still leaves great results in color. Clay body doesn't seen to have much affect on coloration. Aside from a little running, there are no visible flaws. The glaze has a nice fit without any crazing, however textures can be left sharp if they have an edge already. Fire to cone 6  and enjoy.
