Potters & Sculptors - Making Rock from Mud
Crystalline glaze is notorious for being more flaky than granny's' biscuits. Two different methods: a 50/50 blend of EPK and Bentonite: up to 5% recipe weight addition.
More radical: white elmers glue is blended as part of the liquid in small amounts. The glue is organic (latex primarily) and burns off in a glaze fire.
Thanks for the suggestions I think I will try both approaches. You have any idea what percent Elmers I should add?
The only time I have used it is when mixing magnesium and cobalt colorants. I mixed 25% elmers, with 75% water. You have to dry sieve first, then add. Elmers and sieves do not mix very well.
That gives me a good starting point thanks
What end up working best is mixing a little Elmers with the Glaze. If you put too much Elmers it won't crawl as well. Putting a layer of Elmers on the pot and the glaze over it doesn't do anythingAnd.
One problem down.. onward. MGO has some unique chemical properties.
