Thank you both for the suggestions. I had wondered about bentonite and will give it a try but also like the idea from Doulla and I can probably get some bought out to me [I am in southern Spain]

Does anyone have any tips for mixing under glazes in powder form with something which will keep them suspended rather than settling out within a day? Any ideas for a suspension agent that will help? If you buy the ready mixed ones they don't settle out so there must be something that is added. I would much appreciate any comments.


There are other things you can do but probably the quickest and easiest is to add ~2% Bentonite and/or a pinch of Epsom Salt.
