Getting ready for glazing...

Spent most of Saturday cleaning the new shelves and posts, prepping them for kiln wash.

Mixed the epk, glomax, alumina hydrate, and Darvan, and painted all the shelves. This morning, I came in to find the kiln wash had crackled like crazy, and most of it would fall off when I turned each shelf over! Sooooo... I scraped it all off and washed the shelves again. Now I'm powdering the wash to mix it up, and try to paint them again!

  1. Sounds a little complicated. My kiln wash recipe is mighty simple and reliable: a cup of EPK, a cup of silica/flint and stir with some water to make a nice mix. Easy peasy, works great :)
