on another thread, someone suggested that I add some food coloring to my wax resist so I can see what I have coated. Seemed like a good idea to me.
after stealthing into the kitchen to steal my wife's red food coloring, I added a few drops to my axner wax resist. it immediately went from a thick paste to a runny liquid like you would expect a glaze to change if you added sodium silicate to it. Is this what should happen? Should I be using some special type or brand of food coloring to keep it from happening?
