Kevin, are these measurements? 46.0,300 etc.? Does one mix together and add water? sorry if this is obvious, but I am new to this.
Where is the best place to buy these materials?
Typically your local clay/ceramics supply due to weight/shipping. But places like Clayscapes Pottery do ship materials.
Hi if you look at Sheffieldpottery.com they have a lot of items with free shipping, not sure about raw materials. Do live near any distributors? Sheffield is in western Massachusetts, Bailey pottery in near Troy New York, Portland pottery is in Braintree mass, I’ve bought my raw materials from each of these places. Where do you live?
Jess has a class out there about mixing your own glazes that will explain everything.
How do you go about adding colorants, how much? Are mason stains colorants?
thank you --- is this a zinc free clear glaze?
I fire to cone 5, can I still use this glaze? Will it be food safe?
wish 2167 was for sale. I am so new to all this Jess is my Godsend LOL So when she says she uses something I am like....ok buy it now HAHA
oh ok so I'm not a total idiot haha.. I've been looking for her clear glaze for sale and couldn't find it. I figured they'd at least sell the ingredients and just add water maybe? for us noobs? Maybe they do and I just haven't come upon it yet!
I am in the UK and EPK is something I am not familiar with. What does it stand for? Many Thanks. Nadine
It's a kaolin (Edgar Plastic Kaolin).
Quick question, when I go to order silica there are lots of options... is it silica sand or flint/silica or something else?
Thanks so much!
Also are we talking about grams in the recipe?
Flint/silica. It’s not silica sand.
I only use this glaze as I have had a lot of problems with underglaze running and other problems.
Thanks so very much for providing this recipe.
