I am glazing for my next firing. I have 2 glazes I am working with. They are both feldspar glazes but 1 is about 10 years old with a lot of added in glaze. Over the course of ten or so years I have run out of glaze and mixed up more, usually with the same materials but sometimes with feldspars, ash, etc., from different areas. The result is a glaze that is nice but not close to my original glaze. I have used that hodge-podge for 1/2 of the glazing and for the other 1/2 I have mixed up a batch of the original glaze. I want to compare both after the firing. These photos are of the original glaze as I am applying it.
