Most people find it easiest to measure glaze ingredients with a triple-beam balance using the metric weight system based on grams.
But wait! If you've purchased all of your glaze ingredients from a supplier who sells them by the pound, how do you know if you have enough Gerstley borate, for example, to yield the 2,000 grams called for in your glaze recipe?
With the conversion chart below and a calculator, you should have no trouble calculating how many grams of each ingredient you have before you begin mixing. (After all, you wouldn't want to get caught half-way through the mixing process without enough ingredients to complete mixing your glaze!)
