I got all the ingredients today to mix my first batch of glaze - Kitten’s Clear - from John Britt’s book on mid-fire glazes.
Trouble is, the recipe calls for an added 2% of bentonite and the girl who helped me gather all the ingredients either missed/skipped or forgot it.
How essential is the bentonite? Can I proceed without it? I plan to add some whiting and stain. If it’s essential, can someone link a good place to buy some online? I actually have a 100% bentonite clay powder I use for a face mask - would that work as a replacement?
