How Do I Thicken A Glaze For Glazetrailing?

Recommended Posts

Marge    0

Has anyone out there thickened a glaze for glazetrailing? I'm making my own cone 6 glazes and want to glazetrail designs.  I've tried sliptrailing and I'm not a fan (I gave it a good try though!!)  Can I just add a thickening agent (perhaps Veegum)? I know I can use a store bought one like Stroke & Coat, but I prefer to make my own, then its easy to make more :D Thanks!!

try to find Angelica Pozo's book on tilemaking.  she describes a method of doing just what you want to do and provides a recipe. is the term something like "cuerda seca" familiar?  that is the process of making separate areas of color surrounded by black barriers.  think of stained glass.

if you add flocculants , the liquid will act like it is thickened. Try a couple of drops of vinegar to a small amount and see what happens.

cuerda seca , "dry line" is a wax y balm of a tree mixed with manganese to replel majolica glaze from flowing into other areas.

The would not necessarily thicken a glaze.
