  1. One of the old commercial glazes I inherited was called Speckled Bone. Maybe the only way to get a speckled glaze is to buy a commercial one?

      If you don't have easy access to a tile saw, contact a local tile contractor/installer and ask them to cut it for you. A diamond dry-cut blade in a skillsaw will do the job too, but the blade can be pricey for a one shot project.

      Tile zip saw blade should also work.

      22.5 degree angles by the way.

  5. Visited Richard Gill's fall show in Burnstown, Ontario, yesterday. He does wonderful wall plaques of places he has visited. He now has wonderful plaques of musiciens. If you don't know his work, google him and you will get a wonderful surprise.

      Ummm. I oversused the word " wonderful" but i like his work so much we have a 2'x1' plaque he made. We also had him made a smaller one from a photo of a lane in Ledbury, England. When my husband looks at it, he is reminded of the feel of the place.

  6. For small quantities of glazes, what ratio of water to dry glaze do I use?

      Every glaze is different Iusually test In 2000 gm dry wright batches. I'll add that to 1500 gms /ml of water.. Stir may need to add more to get well mixed. I then slake over night or longer and more water if necessary, strain then check again. Key here is to slowly work up up to consistency.

      I go 50/50 to start with too. 100g of water for 100g dry glaze.

      In Mastering Cone 6 Glazes Ron Roy suggests to use 3 ounces of water to every 100 Gram of dry weight. I have found this to be a very good starting point.

  7. How to mix small amounts of powered glazes
