Clayscapes Pottery Glaze Mixing and Application Instructions and Tips

Amount of water to add to Clayscapes Pottery Glazes per pound

For Any glaze with a Hydrometer Reading of 1.45 or 1.43 on an 11 " Hydrometer
For Any glaze with a Hydrometer Reading of 45 or 43 on an 6 " Hydrometer

Add 12 ounces of water per dry pound of glaze and mix and 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. Water Density is different in different parts of the country. This formula works for the Central NY area. You might need to add more water to your glaze if it is still too thick.

For Any glaze with a Hydrometer Reading of 1.5, 1.55, 1.6, 1.65 on an 11 " Hydrometer
For Any glaze with a Hydrometer Reading of 47, 52, 54, 57 on an 6 " Hydrometer

Add 10 ounces of water per dry pound of glaze and mix and 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. Water Density is different in different parts of the country. This formula works for the Central NY area. You might need to add more water to your glaze if it is still too thick.

Water Conversions
o 1 ounce = .06 pounds = 29 milliliters = .12 cup
o 2 ounces = .13 pounds = 59 milliliters = cup
o 3 ounces = .19 pounds = 88 milliliters = .37 cup
o 10 ounces = .63 pounds = 295 milliliters = 1 cups
o 12 ounces = .75 pounds = 353 milliliters = 1 cups

These are intended for dipping/pouring but with modifications you can certainly spray/brush them. It is important to TEST before you use in production. If you find the glaze hard panning then you have added too much water.
