The secret to cool bodies and glazes is alot of testing. But how will you be able to learn from that testing without a good place to store the recipes? Document the successes and failures? Do it in your account at https://insight-live.com.

Incorporates some MgO (at the expense of CaO, KNaO) to reduce the thermal expansion of G1214M 5x20 glaze.

Notes

This glaze adjusts G1214M 5x20 to reduce its thermal expansion (incorporating MgO). It goes in the same direction as G1215U but does not add as much MgO and sources it from Talc instead of Ferro Frit 3249. The MgO is added at the expense of CaO, KNaO. Boron has also been increased a little. The thermal expansion has gone from 7.0 to 6.5. The two frits here are tuned to supply enough Al2O3 to keep the kaolin low enough to prevent shrinkage cracks on drying.

This glaze survives and 300F oven:ice-water crazing test on Plainsman M370.

It works well as a white (with 10% zirconium silicate) and as a black (5% Mason 6666 black stain).
However some users find that this do fire as glassy as our standard G2926B recipe.
