Mayco Stoneware Dry-Mix Glazes don't have to be sieved: The manufacturing process includes ball milling to very precise particles sizes. All you need to do to use Mayco dry-mix glazes is add water, slake, stir and dip. You'll love the sheeting action when dipping and be pleased to find that Mayco dry-mix glazes will not settle out in your storage bucket.
Powdered glazes, once mixed with water according to the recommended guidance, are suitable for dipping, pouring or spraying onto the piece. They are not suitable for brushing-on without addition of a glaze binder such as Pehatine. If brush-application is intended, we would recommend you select one of our ready-mixed brush-on glazes instead.
Transparent glazes must be applied thinly and fired/cooled on a fast schedule to avoid ‘milkiness’ and/or crazing in the fired result.
Artistic/special effect glazes usually require a generous application to achieve the desired effect. Please note the individual product descriptions for product-specific guidance. Some special effect glazes can melt/flow considerably during firing so please take all necessary precautions, especially with regard to protecting your kiln furniture (stilting, batt wash etc.).
