Latex Removal

Recommended Posts

roca rule    0

Hello everyboy, my name is roberto and I have decided that i am giving another go to ceramics. i am not that bad, but i would say barely decent at it. Any was i have some leftover bisqueware from about 6-7 years that has some latex and i want to strip it off. Now the latex is amonia based and has been sitting on the pieces all those years and i can't seem to remove it. I know i can probably grind it of, but is there any other ways to remove latex?

the thing is that I want to glaze the whole thing. or do you think that if i fire them at bisque once again they could absorb the glaze? i know wax can be burn off in a stove oven and leave no residue, but I am not aware that you can do the same with latex.

Just rebisque them, the latex should burn off just fine.  It might stink, but I do this regularly with wax.

I agree. Just bisque them. I hope your kiln is vented. Don't breath the fumes.

Dry cleaning fluid might work - it's the best solvent for Copydex,  which is what I use if I want a latex type resist.
