We had supplies delivered today to mix our own cone 6 glazes based on some recipes we got from a local studio.  Does anyone have tips/suggestions for the mixing process or how to get the perfect consistency?  We didn't receive MSDS sheets for what we purchased so will do some safety research before we get started.

I have mixed glazes for cone 10 firing. I like to mix outside when possible- so I don not need to worry about the chemicals in the house air.  Make sure to use the correct face mask/filter.  Especially if using dangerous chemicals.  I Love John Britt's book on cone 10 glazes.  Even though the recipes are for cone 10 it gives a lot of helpful information on the individual chemicals that would be applicable at all firing temps. 
Have you mixed and fired any yet?  How did they turn out?

Thanks so much for your response, plaidpineapple!  My husband took on the glaze mixing duties and he's done three so far.  I love how they came out.  Here's oatmeal with a blue accent.

Have you played any more?

When I did a glaze workshop some months ago we made up a triaxial blend.

I found it really good for variants in colour and to see how they reacted to each other.

I am just about to make the change from earthenware to stoneware......kinda excited about it but need to do some more research into glazes that will work well in oxidation.
So wish we had a gas kiln at the workshop. Sad
