Measuring Specific Gravity of Glazes 2
Since people were interested in the low tech approach, here is another method to measure sp. gr. (or really the thickness of the glaze slop). You just take an old film container and submerge it in a freshly stirred glaze bucket and put the lid on. That way it is totally full with no variance. Then dry it and weight it. That is your new reference number!
Clay Club meets at artist studios and other locations throughout Western North Carolina, usually on the second Wednesday of the month. All potters and ceramic artists are welcome! Look for details about the meetings here on the blog or contact Amy Waller at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
