ZYP Boron Nitride Mold Release ZYP Boron Nitride Mold Release

The artist helper formerly known as MR-97.
ZYP works wonderfully as a ceramic mold release. It's easy to use - shake vigorously and use the trigger to spray on your slumping or casting mold at room temperature. The easy spray-on formula provides a slick coating to produce a flawlessly smooth and easily released project.  This water-based paint will take longer to dry than solvent-based paint. This glass release is a non-hazardous, non-flammable product, thus allowing much lower shipping/handling costs. Just like the aerosol, this new easy-to-use trigger sprayer allows application of boron nitride paint onto most any non-glazed (i.e., bisque) surface, substrate or mold.  It is not recommended for stainless steel as the sprayer might give an uneven application.

12-ounce bottle will prime about 20 medium sized molds. You may need to touch up the areas where the glass touches the mold after 4 or 5 firings.  Be sure to periodically brush off previous applications with a nylon brush to prevent build up.

Sold in 12 oz bottles.  Note: This item can be shipped via USPS!

They result when there are leftover components from a standard run or when they are experimenting with new colors. These are some of Uroboros' most spectacular glass sheets, and they are all one-of-a-kind. Many artists look forward to a new shipment of Uncats arriving since they can really broaden their palette.
