L3954B Mid Temperature Engobe
Engobes (slips) are very widely used in industry (especially tile). They are opaque and can completely hide the body underneath. Engobes must be matched to the body and temperature they are used for and application and use are tricky. Engobes open up many design opportunities. Please read this share for details on the recipe and how to use this product. We are not yet manufacturing it but you can make it for yourself for now.

The outside glaze on the right is that same clear with 4% added iron oxide. The outside glaze on the left mug is GA6A Alberta Slip clear using Ferro Frit 3195 as the flux.
