Steel Blue Opaq powder

Postby JLSANDERS07 » Sat Sep 15, 2018 6:52 am

Hi! Why won't the steel blue powder give me the sliver/gray that the sheet glass does when uncapped? I first fired the piece to 1500 but when it came out blue, I fired it again to 1300. Still blue. What am i doing wrong? I am trying to find a way to 'drip' my accent pieces in steel blue for a metallic rim look. Thanks!

Try firing it to 1200--perhaps your kiln fires hotter than indicated.
