Mixing Powdewed Glazes:

  • Always wear a mask when mixing powdered glaze.
  • Gently add the glaze powder to water in a bucket, avoid adding all at once to prevent clumping.
  • Mix glaze using either a hand or electric whisk for 10 minutes
  • Sieve the liquid glaze using an 80 or 100 mesh sieve, working all the material through the sieve using a stiff brush.
  • The glaze mix should have a creamy viscosity, remember it’s easier to thin a glaze so begin with a thicker mix than you expect.
  • Although all our glazes are and non-toxic, it is essential in any pottery studio to minimise inhalation of silica dust. Always clean up with a damp sponge and if any dust is airborne, such as when mixing powder glazes.

Glazes that have a low clay content do tend to settle more quickly. We find that adding a small amount of calcium chloride liquid (one or two tablespoonfuls per gallon) is helpful. Do be careful however, not to overdo the calcium chloride as this can lead to a fault known as 'plucking' in which the glaze cracks and pulls away form the body during firing.

Troubleshooting

Ceramics can be harsh and unforgiving, and glazing isn't an exact science. But with that comes the unpredicabilty that draws us to this medium in the first place.

Customer Reviews

"very nice shiny stoneware glaze that I have found to be 100% reliable at 1260c in an electric kiln. I mix it to single cream thickness. A fairly quick dip of two-three seconds results in flecked orange on ridges and thin sections with thicker sections having a more uniform creamy colour with less orange flecking. It can run if very thick, so I clean the base rim for 3mm with a wet sponge. The new sample tiles on the Bath Potters website don't really do the glaze justice."
