Here is a glimpse at the results of my pig sculpture now it has been fired. The glaze used is called 30/30/30 and it is a Matt Cone 10 Stoneware glaze.
Wearing a mask and gloves mix 30% Whiting; 30% China Clay and 30% Potash Feldspar. The colour is the addition of 2% iron oxide.
Where it is thick it has a greenish tone when fired to 1280 degrees Celcius in a reduction firing.

I like the mottled glaze color which is perfect for your pigs.

thanks Linda, the close up photo does exaggerate the mottling but I was pleased with the result.
