Note: Vee gum (for brushability) and CMC gum (to harden the glaze surface before firing) need to be blunged in hot water before being added to the glaze. To keep measurements accurate, use a ratio of 1g CMC or Vee gum to 19g water. For every gram needed in the glaze, measure out 20g of the mixed solution. The commercial stains listed are Mason stains (MS) from Mason Color Works (www.masoncolor.com).
