Report Hot Wax For Bottoms Of Pots? in Clay and Glaze Chemistry Posted January 28, 2015 This past year I switched to hot soy wax. I was having a lot of problems with the wax I was purchasing local and on line. I am neurotic about an even line on the bottoms of my pots. The wax goes on super smooth, I use a foam brush. You could dip. I can't get my table level enough. I use an electric skillet on the lowest setting. No bad smell when firing with the soy. and it is cheap. $5 for 8lbs. Hi May I ask where you get your soy wax? I too use hot wax but dont like the fumes from the paraffin, but the bee and soy way I've found around here is prohibitively expensive.
