Glaze and Slip Mixers
Drill Powered Mixer
This powerful mixer is ideal for making slips from lumps of plastic clay, mixing slip made from powder, making up new glazes and reconstituting stiff glazes.
Using the drill powered mixer: The liquid to be mixed should be in a stable, flat, wide bucket tyoe container that has fairly straight sides. Use mixer firmly locked into a drill and submerge beater into liquid before turning the drill on. Turn the drill off before lifting out of the solution to avoid splattering. The mixer is designed so that it will not damage the side of the bucket.
This cleverly designed plunger will mix new glazes, or agitate glazes that have settled out. Useful also where gentle slip stirring is required.
Using the hand operated plunger: Once again, the liquid to be mixed should be in a stable, flat, wide based bucket type container with straight sides. Just by moving the plunger up and down in the bucket of liquid, the mixture will be stirred.
