Hello Everyone: I am having some problems with some clear glaze. I purchased a 5 gallon bucket of Amaco low firing clear glaze for dipping. I did my first test fire on two plates. The results were very undesirable. When I dipped the plates and pulled them back out of the glaze there were a lot of bubbles on the surface of the plate. The bubbles did pop on their own and those that didn't I popped myself. I was a little concerned but figured I would fire them anyway and see what happens. Just as I suspected the glaze separated in certain areas around the plate. I did another two plates and got the same results. I am not sure what is happening. I am mixing the glaze with a drill and mixer. I have done this with other glazes and have not had a problem. Do I need to mix the glaze and wait a minute or two before dipping? I am glazing on a low fire bisque so that should not be the problem.
