Burke's on porecelain fired to cone 9

In my search for a celadon to use on porcelain fired to cone 9 in an electric kiln, I tried Burke's Strong celadon. It performed well in its sweet green, rather light celadon color, and its ability to show detail of etching on the clay body. However, the evenness of color was a little splotchy. (I mixed it at a ratio of 1 & 4/5 cup water to 1 pound dry glaze.)

Amount of water for celadon

I usually just keep adding water until it is "right". A bit thinner than normal "cream" consistency of other glazes

Amount of water for celadon

I usually get a 20 lb bag for a 5 gallon bucket. This makes about 3/4 of the bucket full.

What is a Mid-Range Cone 6 Glaze?
A mid-range glaze is usually fired in a range from Cone 4 to Cone 7 (2124 degrees Fahrenheit to 2262 degrees Fahrenheit). A Cone 6 glaze is a mid-range glaze that should be fired to Cone 6. Mid-range glaze are normally created to be fired in an electric kiln. Mid-range glazes often mimic effects achieved in high-fire gas kilns. Although Cone 6 glazes are fired at temperatures lower than high-fire glazes, the melting points are still considered to be high. As a result, the glazes are much more durable than low-fire glazes. Often, high-fire glazes can be adjusted to have their melting points lowered to mid-range temperatures. As energy costs rise, mid-range Cone 6 glazes become more popular. It is very expensive to push a kiln from Cone 6 to Cone 10. So, if the desired effects can be achieved at Cone 6, costs can be cut for the potter.
