Hydrometer - 11.5" long

Price: $29.99
Manufacturer: Laguna
Part No: NL204L
Hydrometer - 11.5" long, is used to measure the specific gravity of your mixed glazes or slip.   

This hydrometer works for both glaze and slip and measures 0 - 70 baume or 1.000 - 2.000 gravity. 

The Laguna website recommends mixing their glazes as follows:
The hydrometer reading should be approximately
  • 55 for color dipping glazes
  • 46-47 for clear dipping glazes
  • 60 for spraying
  • 65 for brushing
I find this sufficient for many (but not all glazes). Regardless of the method you choose, you'll need to tweak each of the problematic glazes for best results. Once you find what works best for you, write it down so you can repeat your successes.            
Warning. This product can expose you to chemicals including crystalline silica (airborne particles of respirable size), which is known to the State of California to cause cancer. For more information go to www.P65Warnings.ca.gov Health Hazard Warning
  • Please handle all raw materials with safety in mind. The Dry form of all clay, glaze, and raw materials can expose you to hazards when not handled properly.
  • When handling and mixing DRY ceramic materials and powders, wear a full breathing respirator, eye protection, and gloves to protect your lungs and hands
