Robin's Egg Blue
Posted 21 December 2011 - 07:17 PM
I've thought about taking an existing commercial glaze - Mid South Turquoise and perhaps adding a little copper carbonate and/or cobalt carbonate.
I know it would be an experiment but it's not quite turquoise enough for me.

When I want a greener look I add some Bermuda Green to it.
They also make some nice turquoise colors. The Mason website has good images and technical details.
