Wax Resist

Duncan

Technique Description: Wax Resist is a wax emulsion created to repeal underglazes and glazes applied over it. The wax is burned off during firing, revealing the designs or base colors. Wax Resist also helps prevent chipping or peeling of color when creating sgraffitoed designs through opaque underglazes.

Step 1: Trace design

Wax Resist is a wax emulsion created to repeal underglazes and glazes applied over it. The wax is burned off during firing, revealing the designs or base colors. Wax Resist also helps prevent chipping or peeling of color when creating sgraffitoed designs through opaque underglazes.

Trace your design on the surface of your piece.

Trace design
Step 2: Apply Wax Resist

Shake jar and stir well. Dampen your brush with AS 952 Brush Cleaner and squeeze out excess. This conditions your brush.

Apply 1 good coat of Wax Resist to the design area or section you want to protect. You can use Wax Resist on greenware, bisque, underglaze or glaze. Clean brush immediately after use.

Apply Wax Resist
Step 3: Remove excess Wax Resist

Allow Wax Resist to dry completely.

This step shown is optional: To create a slightly embossed effect on the Wax Resist design, use a dampened sponge to wipe the area around the Wax Resist design on greenware. This step is more specialized to the piece, not necessarily to the Wax Resist.

Step 4: Apply color

Apply the underglaze color over the Wax Resist. Here we used a sponge.

Gently remove excess color from resist area with a dampened sponge before bisque firing. The Wax Resist will burn off during the kiln firing to reveal the protected area.
