I've never mixed a glaze with that much bentonite, but my gut tells me it's overkill. Seems like it's going to be a gelled mess. At 20% clay, you shouldn't need that much bentonite to keep it suspended. I would try substituting EPK for a chunk of the bentonite and see how it does, like maybe 15/5.

A common low fire base is 90% 3124 and 10% EPK, and it does a decent job of staying suspended.
