Wax Resist- Wax resist is used to prevent glaze from adhering to specific areas such as the foot of a pot or where a lid and rim meet. Bailey offers a number of wax resists as well as a latex resist. Waxes burn off in the kiln while latex must be peeled off before firing. Of the waxes we offer, each has slightly different properties that lend themselves to specific techniques.
