Thanks for the quick reply. I would love to take one of your classes however I am in Iowa. I appreciate all your help but am really just looking for a recipe. I know the partial recipe is powder frit and CMC but is it distilled water that is used to make the clay? I know with CMC it can spoil if not used in a certain amount of time after being mixed, is this true for the clay? Do you mix the CMC with the distilled water first and then add the frit or does it make a difference? Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.
