Insight-live has thousands of built-in materials that materials in your recipes can reference. But you can also add your own materials. If these have the same name as built-in materials, the details you specify override the default ones (e.g. cost or chemistry). Insight-live automatically calculates and displays the chemistry of your recipes but it also has controls that enable you to trim the amount of a material up and down and watch the chemistry change as you do. Using this simple technique you can do most types of glaze chemistry.
