  4. what is your favorite wax resist?

    Forbes is a great wax resist when applied to bisque clay. It dries fast and is easy to clean up. It can be somewhat hard to see when applied, so it's a good idea to add food coloring to it. However, it's not so good for applying over some glazes - it can peel away and leave a ragged edge. Sometimes thinning it with a little water can help overcome the overglaze issues. Generally though, Mobilcer and Aftosa are much better for overglaze work. I think it this is because they are petroleum based.

  10. New Forum

    The new default view threw me a bit when I first logged in. If you want the forum to look like it did before , then select the "Table View" icon which is in one of the little boxes to the left of the orangey/salmon colored "Start New Topic" rectangle on the home page. I like the flexibility of being able to organize the information in different views for the different ways our minds work! Edited: for additional detail/clarification
