  1. Hello, I am new here and also just taken over a small pottery studio with limited experience. I have done pottery as a hobby and now in at the deep end, which is fun but also daunting and expensive! I have looked online for the best and cheapest way to make underglazes for kids to use on greenware for one-off groups. (also considering just keeping it un-glazed and send off bisqued to paint at home?!) I made some stained glaze powder/ ball clay concoctions but were very weak in colour and too thick. Can someone please advise on the cheapest way to make underglazes? I have seen other potters have jars of it in kids classes in the past... Does mixing it with ball clay always dull down the colour and what ratio is best? Using just water is too runny. Advice greatly appreciated. Thanks
  2. I've just collected from my 'firer' over a dozen pieces I've thrown, bisque fired then glaze fired (all cone 5/6). Heartbreak ... every glaze has washed-out/faded so much that there's hardly ANY colour on the pieces; the exception being the few pieces i underglazed before applying the (over-)glaze. It seems almost certain that the earthenware clay I'm using will 'devour' any glaze i apply unless i apply an underglaze first!! Any thoughts? ... i certainly hope i don't have to buy shares in an underglaze manufacturer in order to deal with this!?!?!?!
