kiln wash - weight/volume

With the recent subject of kiln wash - I have a short question: Do
you measure your ingredients by weight or by volume?

I use the 50/50 silica & kaolin mix. Had been measuring by weight,
changed a while back to a scoop of silica and a scoop of kaolin.
Never have seen any difference.

Thinking of changing to 50/50 alumina/kaolin when we get our gas kiln
up and going. Do I measure by weight or volume? Or does it really

Thanks, Bill - Waiting here in Virginia to see if Isabelle will come
up the coast and visit us.
