No, they won't. Follow directions for suggested use, then experiment. I like

Chuck: No. I have used many underglazes on the bottoms and sides of pots.
Have never had one stick to the kiln shelf. The only scenario that I can
imaginge, if it would be put on really, really thick. My reason for using it,
sometimes, on the bottom of pots is to eliminate the color of the clay.
