So... I've mixed 3 different 100g batches of clear, added water and sieved. I want to add different percentages of Mason stains and try out some test tiles. What is my next step? Let's say I'm adding 5 and 10% of orange stain, I don't want to use my entire 100g batch for 5% of stain. Do I weigh my wet clear and add the stain to that? If I have 100g of dry clear I could take out and weigh a certain amt but I'm afraid I won't get all of the dry ingredients blended well enough if my sample. I've read about taking some out and placing in cups and adding different percents of stains. I guess I'm just confused about how much wet vs. dry and how much stain. For example, "10% of the stain" would be .1 of my 100g batch, but i don't want to use the whole batch at once.
Did this make any sense? I think I just confused myself!! I have a good digital scale, I just need some guidance.
Thanks in advance----Margie
