What are some good glazes to start with?

There are a couple suggestions for what Raku glazes to start with. First, several clay companies provide premixed powder glazes that just have to be mixed with water to be used. This is definitely easier than purchasing all the individual materials and mixed them yourself. I have used several Laguna glazes and some of my favorites are (Dynasty Blue, Tutti Fruiti, and Raku Burst).

The second thing to consider is the type of glaze. Copper matte glazes, while very exciting when they turn out, are quite a challenge to achieve consistently in many cases. You may want to consider other, more reliable or forgiving glazes. Glossy white (Clear Crackle), blue (Blue Crackle), or green glazes (Gary's Green Crackle) typically have good results and provide an interesting crackle pattern with some flashing.
