This glaze produces a surface coated with small crystals of rutile which grow both around and through the zinc silicate crystals. Surface is fairly smooth. Fires from cones 8 to 10 but is at its best at cone 9. Takes all colorants well except nickel, which should not be used. Cobalt will color the rutile crystals a peacock blue; other colorants do not affect the rutile crystals much.
