Does ammonia base latex have to be removed from greenware after it has been glazed or will it burn off in the kiln?

The reason to use latex resist, is because it is removable. I would highly recommend that you do so.

It would burn off, but I would imagine the smoke and fumes would stink. Also, the latex, I use, isn't as smooth as say a wax resist. Somthe glaze sticks to it more. So if you left the latex, you'd have sponge off all the bits of glaze, still left on it. Otherwise, when the latex burned, those glaze bits would fall on to other projects or the shelves.

yes, remove it. It sculls the surface others.It can come off easier if removed within hours of applying it. If it is dry, dampen with a sponge and it won't tear as easily when removing.
