Mixing Dry Glaze
Learning how to mix dry glaze allows for endless possibilities! Why is mixing dry glaze the way to go?
- You can dip it! This helps get a more even coverage.
- It's far more economical.
- You feel like a mad scientist!
It's easy once you get the hang of it. We'll show you how to mix dry glaze for a 1lb batch and how to check the surface gravity so that you get consistent results every time.
- 1lb dry glaze
- A sealable container, preferably one that can hold 2 pints
- Stir stick
- Hand-held blender (optional)
- 60 Mesh Sieve (optional)
Step 1: Add 1lb of dry glaze into a container. Add 2g Brushing Medium if you're planning on applying the glaze with a brush (not needed for Coyote Glazes).
Step 2: Begin by adding 10oz of water and mix vigorously, preferably with a hand blender. You're aiming for the consistency of heavy cream. Add the remaining 2oz of water if needed.
Step 3: Let stand for 24 hours to allow mixture to settle.
Step 4: After letting it sit for 24 hours, mix again and use a sieve to remove any particles. We recommend using the 60 Mesh Mini Sieve.
Step 5: Check your Specific Gravity!
