Why should one want to try dip glazing? Dipping your pottery has several advantages:
- Dip glazing is one of fastest methods of glazing pottery.
- Dipping gives an even coating of glaze.
- Done with care, the interior of the pot is left unglazed, allowing a different glaze to be used on the inside without overlaying the glazes.
Dipping is generally most useful if you have a large quantity of pottery that will use the same glaze. The glaze is mixed in a bucket, which facilitates the amount of glaze, the glaze displacement as the pot is lowered into the glaze, and the movements used to flick excess glaze off the rim.
