Kiln Wash

APsealIn their latest product release, Mayco introduced Kiln Wash in a 16 oz wide-mouth jar. For the classroom with a ceramics program, Mayco Kiln Wash is a dream. AP certified, pre-mixed, clumpless and the perfect brushing consistency, students will no longer need respirators to combine dry ingredients.  Unlike many kiln wash recipes, getting the ratio just right is tricky. Mayco has a well balanced recipe that does not crack or peel during firing and will endure the demands of a classroom firing schedule. To protect your kiln shelves from dripping glaze, simply coat 2-3 thin layers of Mayco Kiln Wash to each shelf. Fire shelves with bone-dry greenware in a bisque firing to mature the kiln wash. Apply it to other kiln furniture and stilts to avoid glaze fusing to the surface. Find a Mayco Distributor near you to try Mayco Kiln Wash in your studio or classroom.
