How do I make a dipping gkaze brushable

Recommended Posts

Hi Andrea, 

Is brushing medium available where you live? First off you need to remove some of the water from your dipping glaze, by evaporation and/or decanting some off the top (if soluble materials in glaze you will loose a little this way), try and get about 1/3 of the water out of the dipping glaze. Then either add some commercial brushing medium as per directions or mix up some of your own. For making your own take a gallon of very hot water and sprinkle on 2 tablespoons of CMC gum plus an optional 1 tablespoon Veegum T (or if you have it just use Veegum Cer in place of both those)  plus a 1/4 teaspoon of copper carb. (copper will stop the gum from rotting). Let it sit overnight then mix it up with a stick blender. Add a bit of the gum solution to your glaze, try brushing it, add more if necessary. 

edit: what is the difficulty with your dipping glaze?
