I made a small batch of glaze from raw/dry ingredients. (First time)
I used Approx 22 fluid oz water for 1kilo dry glaze
If my conversions is correct 650.6 ml/ gm of water to 1000gm glaze
This tested out well, info was from Laguna clay for their dry mix glazes (8 to 11 oz per pound)
I want to make larger quantity.
Glaze mixer suggests 1:1 ratio or equal parts not 1: 0.65
As always testing is king and constiency of glaze is adjustable, eg add water gradually.....
Why the big difference?
What is the text book ratio?
As volume increases do ratios stay the same?
Aftersome testing .Here is my (secret) recipe I adjusted a ratios from cherry shino from CAD , "33 tried and true glazes", which originally was a John britt recipe. Original is 10 40 40 10
10 soda ash
37.5. Neph Sy
Why is this called cherry blossom shino when there is no color added? Beautiful nonetheless.
What is rule/s that define a real shino?
Is it appropriate decorum to site source, if altered?
This glaze settles /floculates (sp) easily, Epsom salts to deflocculate? How much? Is a well mixed glaze as good as one that is chemically deflocculated?
Attached is image of new formulation, primarily for less gloss, more pinholes.
Thanks in advance.
