Will I need to reapply all the wax resist to refire the plate? Would appreciate any advice that someone has, who uses a lot of wax resist. Thank you.

Does anyone have any tips for how to use this methodfor large platters and dinner plates? Iam having trouble because my fingers get too close to the hot wax.

hot paraffin is limited to the size of the hot dip pan-we use a 14 inch electric pan for hot dipping.Just opened another case of paraffin yesterday-you can find a lager pan and use a hot plate.
Our plates have feet so hot dips will not work well for them.
Keep in mind all the safety things with hot wax
Hot dip is only really good for flat bottom forms-those with nice trimmed feet still get had waxed-we use a damp sponge to apply mobil A wax (the liquid stuff) never a brush (to slow)
You could use a brush with hot dip but that takes more time than sponging.

I wonder if you could do the clean line on the foot with the liquid and then dip the rest? I will try that as a way of being able to use the hot wax for the majority of it.
