Mixing dry glaze at home with simple kitchen tools!

Learning how to mix dry glaze allows for endless possibilities! Why is mixing dry glaze the way to go?

  1. You can dip it! This helps get a more even coverage.
  2. It's far more economical.
  3. You feel like a mad scientist!

It's easy once you get the hang of it. We'll show you how to mix dry glaze for a 1lb batch and how to check the surface gravity so that you get consistent results every time.

You'll need:

  • 1lb dry glaze
  • A sealable container, preferably one that can hold 2 pints
  • Water
  • Stir stick
  • Hand-held blender (optional)
  • 60 Mesh Sieve (optional)

Step 1: Add 1lb of dry glaze into a container. Add 2g Brushing Medium if you're planning on applying the glaze with a brush (not needed for Coyote Glazes).

Step 2: Begin by adding 10oz of water and mix vigorously, preferably with a hand blender. You're aiming for the consistency of heavy cream. Add the remaining 2oz of water if needed.

Step 3: Let stand for 24 hours to allow mixture to settle.

Step 4: After letting it sit for 24 hours, mix again and use a sieve to remove any particles. We recommend using the 60 Mesh Mini Sieve.

Step 5: Check your Specific Gravity
