Coyote Glazes are available pre-mixed with water in pint containers or as dry glaze in 1, 5, 10, or 25 lbs. bags. Dry glazes contain the same ingredients as the wet glazes (minus the water) and can be used to brush, pour, dip, or spray.
5 Lbs. of dry glaze needs approximately half a gallon of water (every glaze is different) and will yield about three quarts of glaze.
10 Lbs. of dry glaze needs approximately one gallon of water and will yield about a gallon and a half of glaze.
25 Lbs. of dry glaze needs approximately two and a half gallons of water and will yield between three and four gallons of glaze.
When mixed with water, Coyote dry glazes are suitable for brushing, pouring or dipping, and do not require the addition of any suspension or brushing ingredients; if they need it, it’s already in there.
Quick Mixing Instructions
Wear an appropriate respirator and gloves, and use adequate ventilation when mixing.
Measure the amount of water recommended on the label (or just a bit less) into a clean bucket.
Slowly add the dry glaze while stirring continuously. Scrape the sides and bottom of the bucket and mix thoroughly.
Screen through a 60 mesh sieve.
Dip and fire a test piece; if too thick, add a small amount of water and retest.
Coyote’s Archie’s Series can be challenging to use, but rewards your skill with some of the most beautiful glazes available. They flow and interact with other colors dramatically, creating fantastic finishes unlike anything else possible in an electric kiln. They are also strongly affected by slow-cooling.
