What he said, but the only real difference between shelf paper (thin fire) and kiln wash is ease of use. And in this context, maybe re-use. Thin fire, or any shelf paper for that matter is a one-time use product. Unusally. With careful lifting, etc., you can reuse, but not a great idea. Mix up a good batch of kiln wash, with good application technique and once dried on a smooth shelf, you can go over it with a nylon and get almost as smooth a surface (and often better) as the paper.
Now if you are carving or texturing with the paper, then you already know the results, but it is still usually a one-time use product.
