These are the tools I use when glazing pots, besides the 5 gallon buckets and sieves:
Along the top, from left to right: Dubarry brand
rubber glove, only worn on right hand (which I use to sponge off pots with).
Laundry soap cup with bent down handle (hangs onto the bucket) for pouring
glaze. Jar of wax resist and brush. Ear syringe for squirting glaze
on with. Paint sponge for cleaning out crevices. Electric drill
with new design of mixer. Hand mixer, abrasive stone at bottom
left for cleaning up pots prior to glazing. Glazing tongs.
Rubber spatula to help get most of the glaze out when transferring between
buckets. Below that are two versions of the sponge and
stick, used for cleaning out glaze from small crevices such as the seats
where lids go. Finally a plastic large measuring cup with water and
an artificial sponge (cut in half, actually) for wiping the glaze off the
pot bottoms and anywhere else it goes. The accumulated glaze in the
container is poured into a bucket for recycling as a scrap glaze.
Not pictured: Large metal dishpan used for pouring glaze into for glazing large bowls and platters, and sieves for delumping and mixing glaze.
