Glaze Layers Peeling

Recommended Posts

docweathers    79

 I am spraying a couple of layers of egg shell glaze on some test tiles.  the first layer is slightly less than 1 mm thick and it is sticking fine. the second 1 mm layer, applied some days later, is sometimes peeling away from the first layer of glaze.

 

however, on the majority of tiles,, it works just fine. I can't figure out what the difference is between the handful of tiles that  the second layer peals away from the first when dried and those that it sticks just fine.

When I have glaze issues like this and I do . I suggest not letting your 1st glaze get so dry and spraying when it still is not bone dry.

I have this issue with freehand brush work-The sooner I can get that second glaze on the less issues of it coming off.

Another idea is-

You could mist a very little 1st and see if this helps it stick better?

That is also what I have found from double dipping. Don't let the first layer get too  dry or when the second goes on the first gathers the water and top peels away.
