Mixing Instructions -Dipping and Pouring

Start by adding 8 – 10 ounces of water per dry pound of glaze.  This will make the glaze to a thicker consistency.  If you are mixing Wheat or Desert Sand start with 5 ounces of water per dry pound.

Let the glaze sit overnight so the particles can hydrate.

The next day add water and stir until the glaze becomes the proper consistency.  We recommend adding 2 - 4 ounces of water per dry pound of glaze at a time. Then mix and test the consistency before adding more water.

These are intended for dipping/pouring but with modifications you can certainly spray/brush them.  If you have any questions, please contact us.

It is important to TEST before you use in production.

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

Mixing Instructions -Jars for Brushing

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.  Some glazes will need to be sieved as well.  We still recommend letting the glaze sit overnight and then re-mixing again the next day.  Like most brushing glazes be sure to get good coverage for best results. (2-3 coats)

Each of the dry brushing glazes will require you to add 10 – 20 ounces of water depending on the consistency you are looking for.  We always recommend starting thick and adding water.  It’s always easier to add water than to take it away.
