I apply all my glazes by brushing. Certain glazes are too dry to brush =
on evenly. Is there anything I can add to make these glazes brush on =

I also apply the majority of my glazes by brushing. Personally, I find that
CMC works pretty well. Someone once suggested Gum Arabic but I have never
tried it because I have no idea what it is or where to buy it.

A couple of my glazes (with clay content) work well with Bentonite.

I use a bit of CMC in some water, decant a bit of water from the glaze and
mix in the CMC suspension. Works great for me!

Hi Lee
A few drops of drugstore glycerine to your glaze slurry will help a lot.
