    Hi All

    I have used a devitrification solution for the first time. I brushed in on a piece around ground edges and then over the top. When it had dried I placed it on a shelf and fired.

    After fusing it all looked great until I turned the piece over. Some solution had seeped under the piece and this has left a stain. being onder the piece it hasn’t fused in I suppose.

    I brushed the solution on when the piece was on my table, not on the shelf.When I moved it I had to be careful as after drying a slight touch rubs the dried solution off.

    If I tried to clean it off the bottom I suspect handling the piece will remove it from the sides or top as well.

    I don’t have a sprayer, but I suspect even spraying some solution may run underneath the piece.

    What is the best way of applying the solution?

    Or do I just have to fire to a higher temp or longer?

    It might help to put paper towels under the piece while applying the coating. Hopefully it will absorb anything that goes over the edge.
