  1. I have some commercial glazes that have gotten lumpy in storage, and need to sieve them before using. I'm thinking a standard kitchen 'strainer' is probably not fine enough, but rather than ordering a sieve on-line, and waiting a week or more, I'm hoping to make one from materials I have on-hand. I have a piece of stainless steel screen, that's labeled "80 Mesh .0055". I see sieves advertised by various pottery suppliers, listed anywhere from 40 mesh to 150 mesh. So I have two questions: 1) What does the 80 mean when referring to an 80 mesh sieve ? (I think I'm safe in assuming the '80' is not holes per square inch, as that would make an opening of around 0.1 inches, depending on wire size) 2) Would this screen that I have be suitable for sieving glazes - or is it too fine ?
