The above pictures show:
- A thin layer of soluble wax is painted on those areas where glaze is not desired. For example, those places where the lid could get stuck to the body or the bottom of the jar. This shows the lip of the lid being painted with wax resist. The wax resist is also brushed onto the top of the body where it contacts the lip of the lid.
- Wax resist is also placed on the bottom of the piece and about 1/16th inch up from the bottom on the outside. Most glazes don't run when fired unless designed to do so. Since centaurs have hooves, hooves have frogs and they can be seen in this photo.
- Once the wax resist is applied to all desired places, the interior glaze color is poured into the body of the piece.
- The glaze slurry is slowly swirled around the inside of the body ensuring an even smooth coating (and final product).
