The only kiln wash that I know of that has to be reapplied after every use is Hotline Primo. It can be easily brushed out of the mold and reapplied, drying between coats with a hair dryer. Kiln wash does not have to be dried in the kiln. Apply it and let it dry overnight. Most kiln wash (with the exception of Primo) applied to a slumping mold will last through many, many firings before having to be reapplied.

I dont use a kiln wash at all. In my fusing classes at a local college we spray our new molds with low fire slip and fire them. We never have to worry about re-applying a wash.November 12, 2011 at 6:54 pm #12306
