How do I make a dipping gkaze brushable

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have a couple of glazes made up and I want  to be able to brush on as I'm having difficulty dipping. How so I do this?

Many thanks

Best regards

Hi Andrea, 

Is brushing medium available where you live? First off you need to remove some of the water from your dipping glaze, by evaporation and/or decanting some off the top (if soluble materials in glaze you will loose a little this way), try and get about 1/3 of the water out of the dipping glaze. Then either add some commercial brushing medium as per directions or mix up some of your own. For making your own take a gallon of very hot water and sprinkle on 2 tablespoons of CMC gum plus an optional 1 tablespoon Veegum T (or if you have it just use Veegum Cer in place of both those)  plus a 1/4 teaspoon of copper carb. (copper will stop the gum from rotting). Let it sit overnight then mix it up with a stick blender. Add a bit of the gum solution to your glaze, try brushing it, add more if necessary. 

edit: what is the difficulty with your dipping glaze?
