Botz Brushes

Simple inexpensive boar bristle brushes. A good quality fan brush and round selected filament brush for decoration.

Botz 9010 Batt wash

Temperature: 900°C - 1260°C

Protects kiln shelves from glaze sticking to them. When glaze has been spilled, it can be removed with a trowel. Apply Botz 9010 in three thick layers to the upper side of the shelve. Let each layer dry. The great advantage over the use of sand is that the paste is secured to the shelve and the kilns stays clean.
