Keeping Glaze Suspended

Recommended Posts

I mixed up a small test batch of a the Chinese crackle glaze I found a recipe for in another topic.

As follows:

83 Custer feldspar

8 silica

9 whiting

Add 10 Zircopax

 

However, this glaze won't stay in suspension very long - starting to settle almost before I can get the lid off and start applying.

Anything I can do to help matters?

Thanks!

Glazes require 5-10% clay for suspension.

 

That would alter your formula substantially.

try 1-2 % bentonite as an alternative.
