Batt Wash – a blend of refractory materials, supplied dry. Mix with water to a consistency of milk & apply to kiln shelves to prevent ware sticking to kiln shelves – will not replace stilts. Batt wash should be used as an addition to stilts in an earthenware firing & an addition to foot ring wiping in a stoneware firing. Apply one thin coat & allow to dry, then apply another. Thick coating eventually cracks & flakes off making an uneven surface.
