Have you tried other borates? I've been happy
with Gillespie Borate as a direct substitute for
Gerstley. There are a few others out there (whose
names don't come to mind just now) that might also
work, possibly with some recipe modifications. If
you can get a decent analysis of whatever brand
you end up with, you can probably use any glaze
program to make the tweaks.

Best regards,

I heard Laguna Clay is trying to re-open the mine. You might try their
web site.
