    Standard Ceramic Glaze Issue

    My Standard ceramic Seamist glaze was going on too thick, even though the specific gravity was measuring ok. It was not settling out in the bucket at all upon standing. On a dipped piece, the glaze would take forever to dry, and would have cracking issues. In many hours of research (and reading at times what seemed to be contradictory advice) , it sounded as though the addition of sodium silicate should thin down the glaze, which is what I thought I wanted to do. I even watched John Britt's video showing exactly what sodium silicate does to his glaze that was behaving like mine -- his thinned down nicely. Mine, on the other hand, gelled up when I added sodium silicate! How could that happen? It seems counter-intuitive, and yet that's what happened. I'm hoping to salvage this bucket of glaze -- is there any advice that will help me? Thank you!
