Wax resist is an emulsion specially created to repel underglazes and glazes applied over it.

  • Apply it directly onto your piece or over base colors
  • Wax burns off during firing, revealing designs and/or base colors
  • Prevents chipping and cracking when creating sgraffito

Available in a 2-oz. squeeze bottle.
