Using Alumina Hydrate and Wax with ADVANCER® Shelves

As an alternative to using kiln wash, many potters use small amounts of alumina hydrate between the pot bottom and shelf surface. If using wax approximately 1 heaping tablespoon of alumina hydrate to 1 cup of wax is usually sufficient. Stir the mixture with a brush before each application to the bottom of the vessel. You may need to experiment depending on your clay body and firing temperature.
