    no. I am still figuring out the straight mix.

For small quantities of glazes, what ratio of water to dry glaze do I use?

    Every glaze is different Iusually test In 2000 gm dry wright batches. I'll add that to 1500 gms /ml of water.. Stir may need to add more to get well mixed. I then slake over night or longer and more water if necessary, strain then check again. Key here is to slowly work up up to consistency.

    I go 50/50 to start with too. 100g of water for 100g dry glaze.

    In Mastering Cone 6 Glazes Ron Roy suggests to use 3 ounces of water to every 100 Gram of dry weight. I have found this to be a very good starting point.

    Good deal. I can't imagine a school with a large clay usage not having a pug mill.

    So nice to take slop and scraps and turn them into a perfect, de-aired mix...I had no idea how nice that would be. I'm already spoiled :)
