Always use a NIOSH approved respirator when mixing dry materials. Whether dipping or spraying: let previous coat dry before applying additional coats. Fire to cone 5/6.
Q: Mayco Stoneware Dry-Mix Glazes don't have to be sieved - why?
A: Our manufacturing process includes ball milling to very precise particles sizes. All you need to do to use our dry-mix glazes is add water, slake, stir and DIP. You'll love the sheeting action when dipping and be pleased to find that our dry-mix glazes will not settle out in your storage bucket.
"Mayco's Stoneware Dry Mix glazes contain the same ingredients as our premixed formulas (leaving out viscosity thickeners and preservatives) and are ideally suited for spraying and dipping application. For best results: Gently tumble unopened bag to remix materials. Mix 1 pound of dry material to 1 pint (16 oz.) of water. Thin or thicken as needed. Our dry blends feature uniform and very fine particle sizing; sieving should not be necessary. For best glazing results: Dipping - stir well right before dipping piece. Immerse the piece for 2-3 seconds; let dry for 3-5 minutes before applying additional coats
