Maintenance Time

Scraping kiln shelves before coating them with kiln wash. It's tedious but necessary. 
Step one is to wet down the used shelf....then I use a razor blade scraper to remove the old kiln wash. That's the tedious part. Once it's nicely cleaned I put at least 5 coats of fresh kiln wash using a Haake brush. It goes on pink but once I dry it in the kiln it turns white and is ready for glass.

I am blessed to have a wet working space on my  the sounds of my creek and the birds chirping up the canyon make the work rather pleasant.

 I have many projects just waiting for to make the time!
