Leslie Ceramics Cone 5 - 6 Midfire Glaze Layer Tests

This is Leslie's 1108 Spanish Brown cone 5/6 glaze.  It has a beautiful deep brick red surface that breaks black with a lovely sheen.  

It also does amazing things when layered with Leslie's other cone 5/6 glazes. The following tiles are just a small sampling of the amazing combinations possible.  All of these tests were fired to cone 5 in an electric kiln on Leslie's cone 5 Vanilla Clay.  They will work just as well at cone 6 although the results would likely be slightly different.
