We’ve all been there – a glazing mistake can happen to even the most experienced potters. Whether you’ve applied too much glaze, missed a spot, or encountered other issues, there are ways to rectify glazing mistakes and salvage your pottery piece.
Fixing Glazing Mistakes:
Here are some steps you can take to fix glazing mistakes:
- If you’ve applied too much glaze, carefully scrape off the excess with a tool or your fingernail.
- For missed spots, you can touch up the area with a small brush and matching glaze before refiring.
- If the glaze has pooled or dripped, gently sand the area to smooth it out before firing again.
- Consider layering another glaze over the mistake to create a new effect or cover the imperfection.
Remember, fixing glazing mistakes requires patience and experimentation. Keep practicing and refining your techniques to achieve the best results.
