Hey John, does the addition of these materials change the specific gravity of the glaze?
Thanks !

No, the sp gr should remain the same but that is the problem ....they look thick or thin but have the same sp gr. That is why glazing is hard.

So application thickness changes without you knowing it!

John, Very informative, Thanks
1 question, is there a difference between Bentonite and Bentonite Volclay? The Volclay doesn't seem to want to dissolve in water. Thanks again,
Joe

John: I have been doing some finger wiping decoration and was wondering if using the CMC would give me more time to work on the piece?
thanks, t
