Wax/Wash

Wax Resist: Stone Mountain Clay & Glaze Co. produces a water-based wax resist for use on your bisqueware. Perfect for repelling glaze off of designs or the bottoms of your pots (protecting your kiln shelves). Our wax has a blue tint, enabling you to see where you have applied the wax (blue burns off in kiln).
Why used a water-based wax?
Unlike paraffin-based products, our wax resist is ready to use right out of the bottle-at room temperature. No need to heat-which means no fumes or heating implements in your workspace. Plus, since it is water-based, our wax does not create any noxious fumes when firing in the kiln.

RIO Wash:  Want to make the most of your piece's texture, but hate the hassle and mess of working with dry chemicals? SMC's RIO Wash is the perfect tool. Ready-to-use right out of the jar, this red iron oxide wash can be applied directly to bisqueware (with a brush or sponge) and sponged off to accent details and carvings. Ideal when used over leaf impressions and other textures. SMC's RIO Wash can also be applied to leatherhard or greenware (like a decorating slip). Our RIO Wash is made from top-quality red iron oxide, the only one good enough to be used in SMC glazes. Can be used on raku, lowfire and high-fire works. But that's not all-RIO Wash is also a great tool for signing the bottom of your work-it won't stick to your kiln shelves!

Relic Wash: Achieve an aged, antique-style look with this great, user-friendly product. Ready-to-use right out of the jar, Relic Wash can be applied directly to bisqueware (with a brush or sponge) and sponged back to accent surface detail. Ideal when used over carvings, impressions and other textures. SMC's Relic Wash can also be applied to leatherhard or greenware pieces (like a decorating slip). Unlike some other black washes, Relic Wash does not contain manganese. Can be used on raku, lowfire and high-fire works. But that's not all-Relic Wash is also a great tool for signing the bottom of your work-it won't stick to your kiln shelves!

Kiln Wash (DRY): This time-tested formula will help keep glaze from sticking to your kiln shelves. Our kiln wash adheres very well to most brands of kiln shelf. Sold in dry form, we recommend you mix it with water to the consistency of latex paint. Brush two coats of wash on your shelves, one running side to side and the other top to bottom. Allow adequate drying time between coats. Unlike many other companies, we have not substituted cheaper materials into our kiln wash, we have used the same trusted formula since the 1970s.
