Clayscapes Pottery Glaze Mixing Instructions -Dipping and Pouring

Amount of water to add to Clayscapes Pottery Glazes per pound

  • If you have Albany Gold, Arctic Blue, Brick, Cranberry, Clinton Pottery Red, Coastal Blue, Copper Patina, Flame, Garden Green, Lake Effect White, Redwood, Royal Purple, or Satin Black
    • Add 12 ounces of water per dry pound of glaze and mix – let sit overnight and then add an additional 2 ounces of water per dry pound of glaze and mix again. We usually let them sit overnight again before using. 
  • If you have Amber, Aqua, Aurora, Bright White, Brighton Beach, Bushwick, Butter, Cobblestone, Coney Island, Cream, Crown Heights, Crystal Clear, Flatbush, Fog Gray, Greenpoint, Jessie’s Chun, Lake Blue, Nebula, Oribe, Pacific Blue, Park Slope, Pitch Black, Red Hook, Royal Blue, Shadow Blue, Smokey Purple, Starry Night, Sunset Park, Tim’s Dark Celadon, or Turquoise Rain
    • Add 10 ounces of water per dry pound of glaze and mix – let sit overnight and then add 2 ounces of water per dry pound of glaze and mix again. We usually let them sit overnight again before using.
  • If you have Desert Sand, Frosted Mint, Spearmint, Spruce Blue or Wheat
    • Add 5 ounces of water per dry pound of glaze and mix – let sit overnight

Water Density is different in different parts of the country.  These formulas work for the Central NY area.  You might need to add more or less water to your glaze if it is too thick or thin. These are intended for dipping/pouring but with modifications you can certainly spray/brush them.  If you have any questions, please contact us.  These are all glazes that we use in our own studio and we will be glad to speak with you on any issues you may come across.  It is important to TEST before you use in production.

If you find the glaze hard panning then you have added to much water.

Clayscapes Pottery Glaze Mixing Instructions -Brushable Jars

These jars of glaze contain 1 pound of dry powdered glaze.  The brushing media has already been added so all you need to do is add water - shake and mix.  We recommend shaking the glaze in the jar vigorously and then using a power drill with a mixing attachment for a couple of minutes.  We still recommend letting the glaze sit overnight and then re-mixing again the next day.  Like most mixing glazes be sure to get good coverage for best results. (2-3 coats)

Cream - add 425 ml of water (14.3 oz)

Starry Night - add 325 ml of water (10 oz)

Nebula - add 325 ml of water (10 oz)

Aqua - add 425 ml of water (14.3 oz)

Jess's Chun - add 350 ml of water (11.8 oz)

Wheat - add 350 ml of water (11.8 oz)

Frosted Mint - add 350 ml of water (11.8 oz)

Be Sure to Clean the lip and lid of your jar thoroughly after each use before sealing it again.  This will keep the lid easy to remove in the future.

Dry glaze in a jar means lower shipping costs for you.  it also means a little extra work on your end.  You may need to add water over time to keep your glaze at a good brushing consistency but be sure to shake or mix up your jar before adding more water.
