Mr. Mark's Removable Wax ON Resist

Mr. Marks’ Wax ON is a water-based wax resist product that contains a special hardener that quickly sets the wax
and eliminates dripping and tacky surfaces. 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. Its 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. Wax ON should be washed with soap and water immediately after use, and the hardener in the wax
can make this material difficult to wash off once it dries.

Mr. Mark's Removable Wax OFF Resist

Mr. Mark's Removable Wax Off Resist is a wax we have created for potters and decorative artists. It is designed
to be painted on like regular wax, but can easily be peeled away. The removal is simple and can be done in a
short period of time. This allows for endless possibilities in design as well as layering. Our Wax Off! Resist drys
in 5-10 minutes depending on how thick you put it on. It drys darker than it appears when wet (so you know when
it's ready). It can even be applied to spots on your bisque ware that have already been dipped in glaze without lifting
away the glaze. On top of all that it's affordable! You will never have to be afraid of dripping wax on your pots and
being stuck with a waxing mistake again: now you can just peel it away! Helpful Hint: By resting your brush in soapy
water while you are working with Wax Off, you will preserve the life of your brush. Clean your brushes with soap and
water after use. dish soap works great. There are no commercial preservatives in this product to prevent it from
freezing. If your area of the world is freezing this product when exposed may harden. There are no refunds if this
happens. Please be aware of your local weather.
