Please note that glaze materials vary from one country to another and
that all glazes need to be tested. Feldspars suitable for most of the
glazes below are: Kingman Feldspar, Custer Feldspar (has 3% more SiO2)
(Potash) and Kona F-4 (Soda).
Glaze components may not always add up to 100% due to modifications.
If you are having trouble finding frits, please consult the Frits
Substitution Chart or the Materials
Analysis Page at The Matrix Glaze Calculation Software page.

It is the responsibility of anybody using the supplied glaze recipes
to be informed of glaze dangers and to ensure the proper safety
precautions are met when mixing and using glazes. In general glaze
components marked 'toxic!' should not be used for tableware. Othert
unmarked ingredients may be harmful to health on skin contact or
if ingested. Frits may contain Lead Bisilicate. General safety precautions
for ceramic materials apply. Contact a supplier, lecturer or professional
if in doubt. Neither Ceramics Today nor its Guide Steven Goldate
will bear any responsibility for incorrectly used glazes and/or
ingredients, nor for any damages due to unexpected glaze results.
All glazes should be tested before use.
