Before and after. I’m on the home stretch getting ready for #laquintaartsfestival. I am firing 3 kilns in 3 days. I leave on Monday.

Yesterday’s post showed how a glaze applies differently when you have different water content (different specific gravities).
🤓
This post shows the difference before and after flocculating a glaze with Epsom salts. Both of these samples have the exact same amount of water (Specific gravity = 1.48).
🤓
Before the Epsom salts are added (left tile) the glaze is milky thin, the particles move freely past one another and don’t stick well to the test tile.
🤓
When the glaze is flocculated with Epsom salts (right tile) the glaze is thicker in the bucket, the particles stick to each other and stick better to the test tile, giving a thicker layer.
🤓
The glaze also takes a bit longer to dry which allows for a smoother, even coat.
🤓
Flocculation and water content both affect how a glaze will apply. Every glaze will have different characteristics. It’s good to get to know how all your glazes work so you can make them work the way you want.

Glaze testing!

quadraxial blends are a little more complicated in terms of the math. i made some with various colorants in a base glaze. it seems like a lot of colorants to have in a glaze, but if you are feeling really specific about the shade of color you are going for, a quad blend might really help!

☀️Glazing days ☀️

This is how I glaze my plates. I use a turn table with a piece of foam on top. I brush the glaze on with a fully loaded brush and keep the plate moving. This vid is sped up half speed 🐢

If you missed my glazing tips you can down load the whole lot in one go over in my bio👍🏻

Happy Sunday 😘

Blindfolded throwing! It’s been a little while since I did this, and it’s a lot of fun. It’s also great practise for focusing on the fingertip sensation of throwing.

I’d love to see other people’s blindfolded throwing attempts, does anyone have a good idea for a hashtag to put them under?
