I’m using refractory cement. I take about a 1/4 cup out of the container and thin it with a few sprinkles of water but still allowing for some consistency. I apply it to the blade evenly with a wooden pop cycle stick. I dress up the pattern with a que tip. I have read to let it dry but I put my blades in while the cememt mix still wet.OP you using furnace cement or Satinite to do it? Do you let it dry on blank before you HT or do you put it in HT wet?
