I've been having the phenomenal luck of the ignorant. My experience with
kiln wash is that the furniture should be a little wet before you apply
it, apply it in thin coats, allowing it to dry between coats. The wash
shouldn't be too thin, but avoid a cakey flow. The point is the thicker
and wetter it is the more like cracking will occur--top drying faster
than the bottom. If I think about it, I sometime spritz the dry top
layer before laying on the next coat. How many coats? three to four.
