ounces to grams

Recommended Posts

I was given a couple of glaze recipes from a potter in England. This person mixes glazes using pounds/ounces. I converted from ounces to grams. Should this make a difference in mixing the glazes? Totaled up, it comes to an odd number like 2501.84. I don't want to mix that large of a batch initially, so for testing purposes, I divided by 10. so I would be working with a batch of 250.18. Am I on the right track with this?? Thanks for your help.

If your conversions were calculated correctly, then you are fine, and making a small batch to start is always a smart idea.

Good luck.

You can work with a 100 gram batch by dividing everything, each ingredient by 250.

You should end up with 100 total. Then you can add the colorants by %.

i also agree it shouldn't make any difference, but rewrite it if not adding to 100 is bothering you that much. having the original recipe in grams vs ounces shouldn't matter at all since everything is a ratio by weight and the actual measurement could be tons, pennyweights, kilo's, etc as long as it's a form of weight (unless the recipe specifies volume instead).
