  1. Should outdoor pieces be glazed on the interior of the piece to prevent future problems? I painted a bisque piece at a studio recently and they glazed and fired it. I noticed when I went to put the piece in my garden that the inside of the piece still had that chalky bisque feel to it. I didn't paint the inside. I thought they dip the whole piece in the glaze (inside and outside), not just the outside painted areas before they fire it. That way the inside would be smooth and shiny like the outside painted parts. Is this a normal procedure for outdoor pieces? Won't this cause a problem with moisture getting inside the piece since the bottom of the piece has a big opening and will be sitting in the dirt?. It seems like it would eventually disinagrate or the paint would separate from the piece.
