I'm not sure that this addresses your problem, and I'm not trying to recommend on supplier over another. But, I've always found that chemicals from US Pigments are much more consistent that with other suppliers. I've, especially, found great variation in rutile when I bought from someone else. Learned my lesson.

We did line tests using the Robin Hopper method and found all the intensities to be the same ugly brown.  Has anyone else found new purchases of RIO to be different...much stronger?  We found that if we mix the ugly Nutmeg 50-50 with a white glaze, we are much closer to the original.
