Kiln wash or kiln paper?

Postby Jannetje McManus » Wed Oct 31, 2018 8:16 pm

I plan to full fuse glass tomorrow and slump it afterwards. I have no kiln paper. If I put a few coats of kiln wash on the kiln shelf, and the glass directly on the kiln shelf, will the glass NOT stick to the kiln shelf?
Thank you,

Yes, several coats of kiln wash will stop the glass from sticking to your shelfduring normal fusing temperatures. You sound like someone new to glass craft. I strongly suggest you buy and (more imprtantly) read Brad’s book Contemporary Fused Glass before you go much further!
