skessel1 posted a topic in Clay and Glaze ChemistryHi all, I had a piece of pottery that developed a couple of cracks in the glaze on the handle and when my thumb rubbed it, a few chips came off. I decided to repaint the undergalze color on where the chip was and did a thin layer of clear overglaze just where I had repainted. Then THIS happened!!! Can anyone tell me why? There are places all along the handle that were perfect after the first glaze firing and after this second one (both at Cone 06), parts that I had not even touched basically burned away back to the bisque. I am so confused. Also, was I wrong to reapply the underglaze and overglaze and refire in an attempt to "fix" it? Thank you in advance. My heart is broken that this happened and I never want it to happen again!!
