This is G2934 matte (cone 6) and G2931K glossy base recipe having the same Cerdec yellow encapsulated stain been added (about 10%). You really need to see these side-by-side to appreciate how much richer the silky matte version looks (and feels). AMACO has popularized the bright glossy transparent look in its 'Celadon' product line (while the effect looks good on smaller areas, for cover glazing it appears 'washed out'). An additional factor to consider is that encapsulated stains begin to decompose around cone 6, this can produce orange-peel and blisters on glossy glazes, but with this matte base we have not seen it happen with any color. Google 'G2934 recipe' to learn more, it is being talked about everywhere, a truly amazing base.
