5 lbs. Wadding (For: Leopard Spot Shino, Wood Fire and Soda Firing)
Description; We like this formula for wadding because it's easy to clean off of the work. Wadding is used to elevate your work off of the kiln shelves for several reasons: protect the foot from being melted to the shelf from wood ash (wood kiln) soda (soda kiln) and, from soda ash leaching back into the foot from Shino glazes. Wadding also lifts the foot off of the shelf so the heat and reduction of your kiln can get up and underneath the work to create a better surface on the bottom of your work.
Mixing: One order equals 5 lbs of dry wading material. Add a little water and mix it thick like clay. And, wedge it up.
Application: Create small balls of wadding (usually 3 to a foot evenly spaced). Dip each ball into White Elmers Craft Glue and gently press it into the rim of the foot so it doesn't go over (or up) the edge too much.
Note: This is a really nice, plastic formula. I've been able to throw into slabs and make cookies out of it for other firings as well. You can also make glass molds from this material and it releases clean from Bulls Eye Glass.
