Specially blended to flow smoothly and to leave no ash residue after firing, this squeegee oil is ideal for holding enamels and fine frit in place while you design and fire your piece. For enamels, mix the oil with powdered enamel, using the general ratio of 4:1 enamel powder to oil (adjust the proportions as needed to get a thicker or thinner mixture). Then simply place the wet enamel onto your design as desired; the oil will hold the enamel where you place it.
To use with frit, apply the oil, using a fine brush, to the design areas where you want to place the frit. Then sprinkle your frit onto those areas, gently clearing away any excess frit when you are finished. The oil acts as an adhesive, holding the frit in place for firing.
