Mr. Mark's Wax ON!


Product Overview

NOTE: The wax resist is colored with a pink or purple tint (that burns out completely), but the actual shade varies by batch.
Recently we were sent a sample of the Mr. Mark’s Wax On. We enjoyed testing this wax resist and found it to be excellent for precision application on bisque fired ware. The light purple color, which completely burns out, makes it easy to see as you are applying it. The wax brushes on smoothly and dries quickly – about 5 minutes! The special hardening agent in this wax also ensures that any glaze that drips over onto the wax will wipe off easily with a wet sponge.

Mr. Mark’s Wax On also works exceptionally well for the “Wax and Wipe” technique on leather-hard or bone dry clay. Apply the wax directly onto your un-bisque fired piece, (I tested it on both a fresh slab and on a bone dry piece), allow it to dry, then use a sponge to remove the clay from the bare places. The wax seals over the clay underneath it, leaving those areas raised. After bisque-firing, you’re left with a nice embossed (or debossed) texture.

Mr. Marks’ Wax ON is a wax resist product that contains a special hardener that quickly sets the wax. It was created to eliminate problematic dripping and tacky surfaces when applying wax. Now you can decorate with wax during glazing without worrying about pesky smudges and sticky fingers. It is ideal for creating detailed, precise surface decoration on bisqueware and can be applied with either a brush or slip applicator. The pink/purple color allows you to easily visualize where wax is applied. However, the color burns out in the firing, just like regular wax.

Wax ON should be stored at room temperature and mixed well before use. Brushes and tools used for application of Wax ON should be washed after use.
