How to use Dipping Glaze
Semantics in Ceramics
1. Make sure the ceramic
piece is clean and free of dust or clay particles.
2. Dust bisque thoroughly
with a duster brush and damp-sponge to remove any remaining dust
3. Pour glaze into container and mix with a clean toilet bowl
brush (Duncan says: yes, really!) Do not use a high-speed electric mixer. Dip
1/2 to 3/4 of the bisque into the glaze and quickly lift it out. Dip remainder
of ware, overlapping already dipped area slightly. Touch up with a glaze brush
4. Clean up brushes and tools with water.
5. Stilt and fire to
shelf cone 06.
Tips and Techniques:
1. Use clean hands or
dipping tongs to hold the ceramic bisque while dipping.
2. Dip with one
single, smooth motion, in and out of the glaze, using wrist action to turn the
ware in the glaze.
3. Keep ware from touching the sides and bottom of
dipping container as the glaze coating may be rubbed off by contact
4. As you removed the ware from the dipping container, shake any
drips off - back into the glaze.
5. Before placing dipped ceramics on a rack
or cart to dry, finger-smooth any drips or runs.
