If you have any favorite glaze or slip or other clay recipes please add them to this thread.

I use my Mastercook software to keep all my glaze recipes, in a separate "cookbook". It automatically changes the quantities for me when I change the "portions" and it's a great way to keep track of ingredients.

Here's one of my favorites. This is the glaze I use for my tiles, and I paint the designs using either cobalt oxide or cobalt carbonate.

Larson's White - (Cone 9-10)

1593 3/4 grams Kona F4 (Soda feldspar)
562 1/2 grams Flint (silica)
468 3/4 grams Whiting
232 1/2 grams Zircopax
150 grams EPK Kaolin
116 1/4 grams Bentonite
