while i have no knowldege of your copper carbonate problem, this works quite
well most of the time. Sieve the glaze through a fine sieve. Retrieve what
stays in the sieve and grind it in a mortar. Laboratory ones are findable in
junks stores, and, I am told, in confiscated property sales such as police
departments and such have.
