I recently bought a programmable kiln to use as a burn out kiln for
casting. I talked myself into the purchase because I’d also wanted to
learn enameling and some slumping/warm glass work. Talking to an
accomplished enameler about my purchase I was told that I couldn’t
use the kiln for anything else once it has been used to burn out
wax. Is this the case? I was under the understanding that during the
high heat all of the wax residues would be completely burned away.
Will I need a separate kiln to successfully do other tasks? Has
anyone else used their kiln for enameling and as a burn out kiln
without problems? Any suggestions on things to avoid? If I put down a
tray and collect most of the molten wax before it starts to burn can
I lessen the “residues” on the walls? Is enameling that touchy?
Thanks in advance for any help,
