I add Sussett (Peptapon #52) to this slip for better brushability. Sussett is an organic gum powder (like CMC Gum) that is mixed with boiling water in a ratio of 20g powder to 1 quart (1L) water. It forms a gel that can be mixed with glazes. Add 4 tsp. (20 mL) of Sussett gel per 1 quart (1L) of glaze.
