1/3 foster fire and 2/3 FPI (fusion) mixed together makes a great boro recipe. or did you mean from scratch?

I use a mix of roughly 1/2 kiln wash and 1/2 alumina hydrate, both from Seattle Pottery Supply. Michael Barley told us this recipe in his class and I like it better than anything I've ever tried, for both boro and soft glass. It's best if it sits overnight after you first add water, but then it's great either air or flame-dried.

I've made the same recipe and it works well. It's also cheaper than dirt. Paula
