Thanks Janie. Unfortunately I had a shelf fall on two fish and completely broke off a fin on one and the tail of another. Clean breaks, though! I can't wait to try the paper clay made with the magic water.

Thanks so much. I have read the term "magic water" before, but never bothered to find out what it was. Now I know, and will definitely try it!

Thanks Lyn. You are giving me hope. Now, just what is "magic water"?

In Topic: sealant for raku glazes

06 October 2011 - 08:28 AM

I use 100% bees wax only on burnished pieces.
Ive been looking for a sealant that want dull burnished surface which i want have to re~apply often.
concrete sealant sounds interesting and would possibly make the piece water proof.
Krylon UV acrylic sealant sounds good if I can purchase it here. I have often seen people sraying after firing but could never find out what it was.
Thank you


I am satisfied with the Krylon UV glossy spray for my luster glazes, but not the matte spray on my matte glazes. It seems to darken them and dull the colors. I will try the beeswax on the matte glazes next. Also, the least expensive beeswax to be found here in the US is the ring that which is used for seating toilets! Pure beeswax. I use it for wood.....another tip from my building contractor partner.
