I have had several folks ask for kiln wash recipes..theory.
Basically it is combinations of Alum/hydrate, China clay, Silica.
Depending on your need, you want to experiment with combinations
that do not flake off.
Often folks will calcine the epk. Robert gave us a Zircopax and calcined
Kaolin idea. The theory is, using a combination of ingredients that do not melt.
No fluxes please.
I have never used wash. If I have some porcelain, or other clays or glazes that
run fast, I dust the shelf with alum/hydrate, or fine sand.
