Beautiful matte rainbow is what this glaze SHOULD be called, I think.  However, Armadillo is also a rather fitting name.  The surface of this glaze approximates the texture of, surprisingly enough, an armadillo, particularly when thicker.  When applied thinner, the surface is sand/matte  The colors range from a rich dark coppery red through a rainbow of mauve, violet, blue, teal, seafoam, yellow and gold.  There’s also a very slight iridescence.  From this firing, and as you can see in the gallery below, reduction in Excelsior yielded more of the reddish color, the sawdust more of the darker purples, and leaves illicits more of the bright rainbow colors, especially goldens.  This glaze is absolutely stunning.
