A stain-based method to achieve this color using the Ravenscrag base recipe.

Ravenscrag Slip40.036.4%
Calcined Ravenscrag Slip40.036.4%
Ferro Frit 313420.018.2%
Mason 6006 Stain10.09.1%


This is an excellent alternative to the GR6-E Raspberry because the recipe is simpler, just a stain addition to the standard transparent. It is easy to adjust the amount of frit to get the exact shade you want.

Because this is transparent (contains no opacifier), different thicknesses have different intensities of color. Because it employs a stain it will be very more consistent that one using chrome and tin. Add an opacifier to create a more pastel color with less depth.

No special firing curve is needed and the surface fires very clean and defect free (with a normal soak at cone 6).

For mixing instructions please see the master recipe, GR6-A.
