In my experience, the different recipes you see for kiln wash have more to =
with temperature range and/or firing type ( soda, wood, oxidation) and very
little to do with weather or not it flakes. Personally I would choose a =

application). Have your kiln wash mixed thin and than wet the shelves with =
and sponge before painting the kiln wash. This ensures both thin and even
application ( of course let dry before putting in the oven).
