does anybody here know if the kiln wash that glass people use in their
kilns on molds is the same as ours? My neighbor has had terrible problems
with the commercial wash they have been buying so I gave him some EPK and
aluminum Hydrate and sent him off. If anyone know different, please let me

I am both a potter and a glass artist and I always used my potter's kiln wash
when fusing glass in the kiln with good results.

Typically, kiln wash for clay is 50% kaolin & 50% flint.
Glass kiln wash, at least ours, is usually 40% kaolin & 60% alumina
We do our best to keep it in stock, as we are trying involved in the glass
industry as well.
Hope this helps,

Hi Barb -
I took a glass fusing/slumping class last spring at a local art school. The
kiln wash was the same as ours. The instructor bought hers from a pottery
supply house... I can't remember which one....(oops!) cuz she just didn't want
to bother with mixing it up. Interestingly, she didn't use a glass kiln, she
used a clay kiln that was in the pottery class room to fire the glass... good
ol' 13" Skutt. All manner of stained glass slumped and fused from cathedral

I do some glass work.. and the kiln wash is not the same as i use for
pottery.. It has NO silica in it.. It is 40% EPK... and...60% Alumina. It
will not adhere to the fused glass. but.. silica will .. so replace your
silica with alumina....
