Pottery studio tip - Forbes Wax Resist

I finally ordered a quart of Forbes wax to test it out.

Best wax resist ever!   It doesn't clump up during application.  It dries super fast.  After it dries it's shiny smooth and not at all sticky.  Brushes wash out with soap and water.

I add a little food coloring to wax resist to help me see the application area.

Forbes is wonderful to use when creating mishima decorations.  It makes surface clean up a breeze.

Sold by Highwater Clays, which is an East Coast company.  If you're West Coast, shipping is going to exceed the cost of the wax, but I still think it's worth the cost.

I love this product and highly recommend it.
