In Topic: Glazing bubbles...help ? :/

04 April 2013 - 01:52 AM

Penny here again..
I was unable to put more than one photo on the page because of my ipad mini....so here is photo Nbr 2. and 3. the cup shows the overall texture of most of the kiln load.which by the way, are different glazes. The third photo is a close up of the top of the cassarole dish.May I ask, with epson salt, do I dissolve it in water before I add it to the recipe? Why is it important to smooth over bubbles made when dipping pots?
Now that I have read your suggestions, I will agree that some of my glazes r a bit thicker than cream.maybe this is the reason for the bubbles?
I had a pot blow in my last kiln load and I didn't completely clean out the shards so maybe they are affecting the glazes?
Thanks a bunch to everyone with their answers!

Thank you all who have written me. In answer to my own question, So hers exactly what my problem is..In general... a recipe calls for percentages and I need to calculate the ingredients into grams. so changing percentage into grams. Is there a easy sure fire way to figure this every time? Man I feel not so smart..

Ok a new question is this....I have tested with small amounts of a transparent glaze with mason stains added. I had also bought a premixed ..powder.. Laguna birch white glaze that I plan on adding Mason stains to it also. With what I'm reading, 10% of a mason stain is what I need when mixing for colors added. Does anyone know if it's possible to add other dry ingredients to a premixed glaze? The birch white is Laguna WC-511 cone 5 glaze. Say I wanted a sea foam green...any suggestions kind regards, Penny
