More Tin talk...one more example of what Tin does.
These are the same glaze, again made without Tin on the right, adding Tin to the same batch on the left. This time, the glaze is just increasing the level of opacity.
As we said in earlier post today, when we opacify a glaze, aside from making it white, it tends to make glazes “pastel” which is color theory terms, meant to mix a glaze with white. Which lightens the overall appearance.
One thing to mention...We are hearing through the grape vine, that Tin prices are about to skyrocket. So if you use a lot of Tin on your work, it may be time to invest.
