VC "71" matte base is a Mid-Range Ceramic Glaze Recipe.

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.
