This is the first video in a series I am developing on glaze application and glazing techniques. In this first video, Fundamentals of Glazing: The Basics I show various techniques like pouring, dipping, and brushing on glazes.
This video walks you through the basics of glaze application beginning with insuring a consistent bisque, getting your bisque ware ready for glazing, having a well-mixed glaze, the correct glaze thickness (specific gravity) and then the thickness of the glaze on the actual pot. I then walk you through a variety of application techniques – pouring, dipping and brushing on various forms, tumblers, bowls, vases and plates.
I also share my systematic approach to glaze application and record-keeping which enables you to concisely produce the glaze affects you want.
If you are a beginner or intermediate potter who struggles with glaze application …this is the video for you.
This is a DVD.
