The supplier of your slip may have a tried and true glaze that will fit onto the slip you are using. This may be the way for you if you are not confident in altering glazes/clay bodies. 

hit the crazing button above left to see the discussions around this prob. You are not alone.

If you keep just trying at random it could get expensive. AND you will be more frustrated. Talk to your supplier.

The issue, as addressed by JB, won't go away without testing and altering.

OK>.. now I'm confused........... you said

 

 

I have been using the same clay,slip and glazes purchased from a local ceramic shop. Everything has turned out beautifully but I got a new mug mold that will NOT stop giving me issues!
 

 

Then you said.........

If you had said you changed the BODY you were using along with the mold.... we could have gotten to the answer without all the confusion.  Then all the changes in which glaze used was just a "red herring" dragged across the path.

 

We could have saved you a lot of time.  Sorry.

 

best,
