I bought engobes powder.
Can anyone tell me if when I put water in engobe powder, I add with the water some substance to stick with engobe glazed effects?  :blink:

Speak of glycerin, olive oil ....
Adding a bit in for horizontal sliding engobe colors do not mix?

Bought a covering premixed dry.

I'll slide the engobe in various colors using the Slip Trailers.
I want the colors do not mix.

The commercial engobes I bought just required adding water, then mixing. Did not need to add anything else. Adding glycerin, olive oil, or baby oil will make them easier to apply with a brush, but they will also take a bit longer to dry.
