|German term or phrase: Glasurmasse|
|From the newsletter for a club of collectors of ceramic figures. Explanation of the production process ...|
Beim nächsten Schritt, dem Glasieren, wird die Figur in eine Glasurmasse aus Wasser, Kaolin, Quarz und Feldspat getaucht.
Ernst has 'glass frit' for this, but I have two concerns about this:
1) I'm not dealing with glass, but ceramics ...
2) I'm not sure a general readership (a lot of these collectors seem to be old ladies or young children - not rocket scientists) would understand it. It would certainly mean nothing to me (not that that's necessarily saying much!). Could anyone provide a synonym with easily understandable components, or a quick explanation of what this stuff is.
Thanks in advance
Technically speaking it is a glaze slip, however, I would also accept glaze mass or glaze body, in particular when the target group is setup of laypersons. My experience: 10 years in the ceramics industry as a translator and interpreter.

|That's great, thanks! I think I'll go with slip, because I have heard of it even though I know virtually nothing about ceramics (-:|
