In Topic: Making Your Own Glaze

Yesterday, 02:54 PM

If Your just starting out with mixing your own glazes you need some items other than the raw materials.  A few of the items are:

sieves, large and test size

buckets with lids

mixer, I use a kitchen hand blender, you can use a drill (although I got plastic chunks in my glazes from the drill on the bottom of the bucket.)

brushes, spatulas, trays, etc..

fine particle mask

place to mix and to store materials

 

I'm sure there are more I can't think of at the moment.

Thanks everyone. I think it is the clay causing the cracking. I will try something with more grog.

Super cool.  Wish I could of kept up with the narration.  So the vessels are sold unglazed?  How many times a year do they fire the kiln?

I have been looking into this also.  I had tried just paraffin but the result were not usable.  I am not familiar with all of the ingredients.  Does this wax degrade over time?  Can you recycle it?  I want to make sprig molds.

 

Thanks for the info.

I have used a new adhesive recently.  E6000. came from the local hard ware store.  No need to mix.  Holds anything.
