SY547 Wax Resist Specialty Product by Duncan
Wax Resist repels color from the coated area and fires off. It can be used on greenware or bisque, under, between or on top of any unfired color, to protect coated areas from color. It can be applied with a brush, sponge or spattered. Each method allows the artist to expand the options in the decorating process.
Product Features, Attributes and Application Recommendations:
Apply one generous coat of Wax Resist. Even a thin coat will repel color. Once an area is coated with Wax Resist a second coat will not adhere to the previous one; it will bead up on the first coat.
Once a coat of Wax Resist is applied it can only be removed by firing.
When glaze or color is applied over Wax Resist with an underlying unfired glaze, the “beads” of color need to be removed prior to firing. These can be removed by pouncing a clean, damp sponge over the waxed areas. Any color left on the wax that is used on top of an unfired glaze will adhere to the underlying glaze during the firing.
If several coats of color are being applied, it is easier to remove excess color after each coat rather than letting them dry and trying to remove them all after the final coat.
A sea wool sponge offers the most varied and dramatic effect to veil the wax and color.
Mayco recommends the brush or sponge be preconditioned with AC-525 Brush Cleaner to allow easier clean up. Condition the brush by saturating the hairs. Then remove any excess Brush Cleaner before using the Wax Resist.
If Wax Resist should dry in the brush it may be removed using AC-520 Solvent.
