Glaze Mixing 101


An Introduction to Developing Glazes

This is an excellent class for the potter who desires more control over the color and surface of their glazes. Learning to mix your own glazes can save you from purchasing costly commercial glazes.

Students will learn about the basic parts of a glaze: glass-former, flux, stabilizer and colorants (and opacifiers). From this students will learn methods to correct for glaze flaws, change colors, and how to develop their own glaze palette. This will include line blends and triaxial blends.





If you can follow a recipe and use a scale you can mix a glaze.
