BE Dense White (0313) Reaction

Postby lbailey » Wed Apr 24, 2019 2:37 pm

Have worked a fair amount using Dense White with French Vanilla and now testing other colors listed to react with Dense White. Oddly enough there appears to be no reaction with Tomato Red, Red Opal, Spring Green or Marigold Yellow.

According to BE's "Reactive Potential" chart all 4 of these colors contain Sulfur/Selenium and Dense White contains Lead. I understand the definition of "potential" but 4 out of 4 tests fail to produce a reaction? Test tiles fired to 1480F with 10 min hold, Dense White base, other colors on top. Included a piece of FV to confirm that my DW is actually DW, got a nice reaction. Obviously I'm missing something.....

Posted this on the BE forum and no response yet, so I thought I'd ask here.

Thanks

BE's reactive potential chart is just the possibility of a reaction, not definitely a reaction.

I have tested almost all of the "lead" reactions. 0313 and 0243 react with 0137, but nothing else i have tried works. Almost none of the other lead colors react with anything in any significant way. Haven't tested them all, but I have tested quite a few of them with no apparent reaction.

Also, some of the copper/sulfur-selenium reactions don't show a reaction either.

Thanks Brad, I was afraid that might be the case but wanted to ask in case I had missed something in testing.

You know what gives a fabulous reaction is Robin Egg Blue and French Vanilla. Simply awesome
