Wood Kiln Day 4

Wow, I've managed to get a lot done with the help of my wife, but there's still a bunch to do before tomorrow. I need to add water to all of my dry batched glazes, make wadding, mix up kiln wash and wash the shelving.

I'm still a little nervous about trying a trick I learned a while ago involving silver paint (not luster) on the rims and seats of lids as a resist. Supposedly the pigment is Al2/Al2O3 and when fired the paint burns away leaving only Al2O3. Can anyone confirm this?

Anyway... I'm off to get my list done for tonight!
