Carboxy/Methyl Cellulose (C.M.C.) Powder
An organic cellulose gum which functions as a thickener, binder, and suspending agent in glazes.
Usually added to glazes in amounts of less than 0.5%. Add to warm water to dissolve and age before adding to a liquid glaze.
Directions for adding to The Ceramic Shop 8oz Pro Series Glazes:
Add 1/4 teaspoon of dry CMC Powder (approximately 3 grams) directly to the 8oz jar. Allow to hydrate and shake vigorously for 1 min to incorporate. Allow to sit overnight and blend with a studio-dedicated immersion blender until smooth.
CMC is an organic additive and may grow bactieria and mold over time. Mix in small batches and use within 7-10 days.
