I think it’s about time I do a blog post about one of my favorite glazes…
I’m usually too impatient to make test tiles. It seems like a waste of time to me. It’s not like you can do anything with them, and they take up space in my workshop. So, I usually test a glaze on something small, like ornaments. If it doesn’t come out good, no big deal, if it does, then I have something to sell.
These leaves were made from a stoneware clay called #50.
The color is a little darker.
After I test the glaze out on an ornament. I try it on something a little bigger, like these leaves. They were made with B-Mix 5
Then I like to try something with some texture, like these birds.
Which was made with B-Mix 5
This glaze works well with texture, it’s not completely transparent, but at least it doesn’t cover up the texture like some glazes.
It definitely works well on this texture!
Then I tried it out on some small bowls. These came out cute!
I love this glaze! It’s so easy to work with, so nice to brush on, and it’s so reliable and consistent. Everything always comes out great, and the color is beautiful too. What more could you ask for?
This bowl looks so yummy with these mouth watering strawberries!
Then I combined Indigo Float with Blue Midnight
I applied one coat of Blue Midnight and two coats of Indigo Float on top. It came out great! As a matter of fact, this bowl was on Etsy’s Front Page!
This bowl was also glazed with one coat of Blue Midnight and two coats of Indigo Float. I did some photo editing on this photo, so the color is slightly off. It looks like the bowl above. After it sold, I turned it into a food photography photo for my Etsy Shop, but I totally forgot about it, until I did this blog post. I need to list this! Even if no one buys it, it makes a great photo for treasuries.
I made these plain heart dishes not that long ago, they came out cute!
I just realized that I haven’t tried this glaze on any of my dinnerware. I think it’s time I do that. Hmmm, now I have to decide on which one. Should I use it on some plain plates or plates with texture? Let me know what you think!
My favorite color!! Beautiful!!
I know! Thanks Jim! 🙂

Why is indigo pottery called that ? What elements make the blue color on pottery? Does the dye made from indigo have anything to do with indigo pottery? I’d love to know! Thank you.

I have no idea? I’m not Indigo Pottery, never heard of them before you mentioned them.
