I belive it's called slake -->. Slaking (sp).
I was told to slake,over night re mix and strain.
Last glaze I made I just mixed (granted a high speed hand blender), skipped the slake and strain and used right away. But would have welcomes a more inconsistent glaze. Turned out fine. And didn't see any difference for previously slaked batch.
Let's say you don't slake. And because of it you have a few pieces no so perfect. Next time you use glaze say next day, It already has slaked, and any previous issued are solved.
I'm not advocating not slaking. Just stating previous experience.empirical evidence.
If you have the time slake. If not let know how before and after batches look.
Mixing well and
Straining is a must. I'm hypothesizing that the high speed mixing helps saturate dry particles, as opposed to slaking.
