Encapsulated mason stains will definitely get you bright red -- like those posted above -- but they always look "Crayola" to me. Add up to 10% or so and it's pretty hard to screw up since they're made to do what they say. Underglazes also will work in a pinch - Duncan "Really Red" underglaze is a good liquid form of red to add into your glaze or just use it over/under another.
Also, I've tested many commercial ^06/04 glazes (Like Duncan, Speedball, etc) at ^6 and many of them work just fine without any running (but always test first!!!!) since they're made so dependable and user friendly.
If you're looking for a reduction copper red at ^6, then that's different.
^6 Red to Green (reduction)
20 Neph Sye
^6 Berry Rust
7 Neph Sye
9 Bone Ash
If anyone has other ^6 reds (esp. Cu reds) - mind sharing?
