I will say for even applications dipping/pouring is best for me -its the quickest as well-I have learned it well
second best is spray-thats the most even coating on a spinning wheel-but slow- I feel this is the most even everywhere-a bit harder to master
Brushing is the thinest unless many coats are used and the most uneven of the three-as well as the slowest.
I do lots of under glaze brush work but pour the inners and dip or pour the outers

Thanks for the info. I bought some gum arabic today and tried it. Seemed to work much better, but expensive. I'm going to try a commercial additive when I place my next materials order.

Thank you Neil. Your comments have given me some ideas. Going to give this a try since I usually only mixed small amounts up to about 500 g.

Was it worth the trouble? Don't know, the project is on hold for awhile. As to the brushing medium, I don't know what it consists of but it wasn't very expensive (unlike the glaze!), and three coats brush on evenly.
