Wash Results

The results of the wash experiments are rather blah.
For example: here is a bowl fired a couple of days ago. It should have been a bloody red on the outside! Used Red Art Clay, Red Iron Oxide and Frit 3110 under a transparent glaze.
On the inside i expected lavender and gold.
The lavender sorta worked; the gold is brown. Used a Manganese + water wash and a Rutile + Frit 3134 Wash respectively.
On this piece used a glaze high in Dolomite and Talc trying for a lavender/purple. Discovered that when high amounts of either are used a stony matte results. And only

vague splotches of lavenders!

See post below for more of the wash results.
