5 lbs. Desert Sun Glaze Cone 10 Reduction

Mixing: One order equals 5 lbs. of dry glaze that makes approx 1 gallon of glaze when water is added. Add water and screen twice thru an 80 mesh screen. 50-52 on a hydrometer.
Application. Dipped or sprayed.
Firing: Cone 10 reduction.
Note: As with any unfamiliar slip or glaze it's always a good idea to test before putting it onto a larger important body of work. Take notes.
