Features:

  • [WHAT IS WAX RESIST?] - Wax resist creates a barrier between the clay and ceramic glaze. Wax naturally repels water and seals over the ceramic clay to keep glaze out. Our wax is made in the USA and has excellent quick drying properties with just the right viscosity so it brushes evenly and smoothly.
  • [HOW TO USE IT] - The most common use is to paint the bottoms of pots and plates before applying pottery glazes (a glazed bottom will likely likely stick to the kiln furniture when firing). Another awesome application is to paint designs on your pieces to create negative space and show off the unglazed clay. Wax resist will also slow down drying of your pottery clay.
  • [FIRING WAX RESIST IN A POTTERY KILN] - Don't worry about applying as much wax resist as you need to your ceramic clay. Wax will burn off at low temperature during the bisque firing process, revealing designs, base colors, or just unglazed clay underneath. That's why wax for pottery is such a fun and awesome tool in your pottery supplies toolkit!
  • [HOW TO CLEAN WAX] - Cleaning wax resist is super easy to clean because we use water soluble wax resist. Dip your brush in soapy water or fabric softener before using wax resist, and the brush will be easier to clean. When you're done, make sure to rinse your brush in warm soapy water. The wax is water soluble so it'll come right off.
  • [LIFETIME WARRANTY] - All Penguin Pottery products are backed by our Lifetime Warranty. if you have any issues, we will give you a refund or replace your product - no questions asked! See warranty & support section for more information.

Details: Wax resist is a great aid to potters and ceramicists who want to keep their glazing neat and clean. You can paint the bottoms to protect your pots from absorbing glaze, and you can also paint designs on your pieces to show off the unglazed clay with negative space. You can also paint wax on to greenware and then with a damp sponge wipe around the wax to show depth of design. The wax will burn off at low temperature during the bisque firing process (approx. 500 degrees), revealing designs, base colors, or just unglazed pot underneath. The wax slows drying in the areas where it is applied, and burns off in the bisque firing. The only purpose of the wax is to make it easier for you to wipe the glaze off. Dip your brush in soapy water or fabric softener before using wax resist, and the brush will be easier to clean.
