I am working with Laguna B mix stoneware, bisque firing at cone 04 and glaze firing at cone 5. I use Columbus Clay wax resist on the bottoms of each piece and often in resist design between layers of glaze. Sometimes I will get wax resist on an unintended area of bisque ware and want to remove it. I ususally just put that piece back in the kiln with my next bisque firing at cone 04 and the wax burns off. Any other suggestions to remove the unwanted wax? At what temperature does the wax burn off? If I had several pieces could I fire them at cone 022? or even lower? I ask because, (in a brainless moment) I waxed the bottoms of several pieces before signing them with underglaze as a usually do.
