How to Measure the Specific Gravity of Your Glazes

Video Tutorial

In this video I demonstrate how to measure the specific gravity of a glaze I just mixed using a graduated cylinder and a scale.

Measuring specific gravity is a way to calculate the water content of a glaze to ensure that each time you glaze, you have the same amount of water.

CONSISTENT WATER CONTENT = CONSISTENT APPLICATION THICKNESS = CONSISTENT RESULTS
