using botz brush on glazes

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Has anyone used Botz brush on glazes? I have found them really awkward to apply evenly. They go dry as soon as they touch the clay. I am using terracotta slipcast earthenware. I am using brush on glazes for now as I have just started doing ceramics again and couldn't buy lots of glaze ingredient straight away.

 

Thanks,

Emma

Hi Emma,

Botz glazes contain CMC (corboxymethycelulose) and are ver easy to use.

They need to be applied with a bristle medium hard brush - not a soft brush.

You need to stir your glaze well. I like to do it with a stick. It becomes a bit more liquid.

Apply a generous first layer by criss crossing the application, then when this layer is dry apply a second and if desired third layer. Keep the last two layers a normal thickness. Care should be taken to work in a concentrated manner so as to obtain a uniform layer after firing.

When the layers dry you may touch it and even transport it. It keeps well on the pot.

Happy glazing! Judith, Geneva/CH
