Stinky glaze buckets vapors

12 December 2012 - 05:10 PM

Alas a couple of weeks ago we began noticing and now are overwhelmed by a sulfur-smelling stinky aroma when we open the glaze buckets. Nose to glaze surface does not smell meaning that you can sniff right around the glazes and can't identify one glaze that may be causing this. We are trying the "Clorox.". Why, how did this start and how,when can we stop it. Any further suggestions? Do we need to throw out all glazes, sanitize and start over? I've never run across this problem before. It's not so nice for our customers either although we making up lots of jstinky jokes too.

Percentages of iron oxide

27 September 2012 - 12:26 AM

We have access to 99% iron oxide through our closest supplier, however we find that 84% works better to get the best contrasts in our Temoku glaze. When looking at glaze formulas in texts and journals the percent content is usually not highlighted. We have found that Spanish RIO is not a direct substitution. I am just asking for clarification which iron is the best choice for trying out new glaze recipes.
Thank you for any information about this question.
