I don'td want to contradict Mel here but my experience with itc as a kiln
wash is a bit mixed. Some glazes did release easily but a lot did not.
With itc either the glaze released from it or it didn't but the itc would
not release from the shelf as kiln wash would. I did coat all of my
furniture with itc and if I thought there was going to be a drip problem, I
coated a piece of refractory with 50:50 wash and set the piece on it. Itc
has properties as Mel pointed out that are more important than glaze/wash
release and I chose to use it for these properties (energy savings in
particular) and backed myself up with kiln wash.

I am confused regarding ITC 100 for kiln furniture. Do you use the ITC and
then cover with wash to prevent glaze drips from sticking or does the ITC
prevent the glaze from adhering to the shelf. Are there other options.
I searched the archives and all the product catalogs with out a clear answer
