Also something none has mentioned yet is how to apply the wash to a kiln shelf. It works best to soak the shelf first and apply the wash in a thin solution while it is still wet. This way the wash soaks into the material instead of sitting just on the surface. Ideally there should be a slightly lighter color to the surface than the rest of the kinlshelf when dried. Kind of chalky looking. Often when I want to resurface the plate after many many uses I will just wet the the surface and rub my hand around on it. This will bring up more wash to the top. Too much on the surface and the glass is more likley to pick up some of the wash.
