Boraq 2 was derived from Boraq 1 in response to issues with matching Gerstley Borate better in higher temperature glaze recipes. Please visit the Boraq 2 material page to learn more about what changes were made and why.

Three materials in this recipe are also difficult to get in most places. Actually, Cadycal is no longer manufactured. However we make this and other recipes public as examples of how material substitutes can be formulated to emulate the physics and chemistry of others.
