Bob, I didn't see anyone else suggest spraying the glaze so I thought I
would... I store most of my glazes in containers big enough for 10,000 gram batches
but there are times when they get really low and the bigger pieces can't be
dipped so I spray them on to get an even coverage. I've always been interested
in how much glaze it actually takes to adequately cover a pot, mug, bowl, etc.
and I can do this by measuring out my mixed glaze and putting it in my spray
