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
