Last week the sun shone which meant it was much easier to get the dusty and unhealthy jobs done outside, including making up new glazes. We order a large batch of glazes every now and then and always try one new one. Sometimes it works and fits in well, often it doesn’t! There are a number of ways to make a glaze – sometimes with all the chemicals and oxides carefully weighed and measured, following a tried and tested recipe (the cheapest but most time-consuming way), sometimes a shop-bought glaze in a pot, ready mixed (the most expensive way), or the middle ground – to buy a powdered version of the glaze you like and weigh and measure it out, making using a sieve, with glaze medium. That’s what’s happening here. It take s awhile and makes a mess but I do love doing it. It’s very satisfying! Watch this space for the finished result.
