Don t wash the glaze out, at $1.00 each, you put one in each vessel and leave
it. Do the initial stir with a whisk, stainless maybe, screen three times,
use the brush for daily stirring. It may not be the best for a single person
studio, but I ve seen them in three shared spaces - Westchester, NY, Dallas,
Texas, and Philadelphia, PA - and they work well. There is a possibility of
iron contribution from the twisted wire but that is usually not a problem.
