I apparently had a relay fail in my kiln and my bisque (eventually intended for a gallery!!) fired to cone 5.  Any suggestions?  Someone suggested spraying the work with a cheap hairspray and then applying glaze.  

did a search and found this link with some more suggestions, good luck!

The kiln is  Skutt 1218.  Whatever the relays did it went to 2162 degrees.  I dipped one of the cups from that  firing in the intended glaze and it appears to be adhering in  the usual way.  My local kiln guy replaced the relays and suggested I fire at medium speed with no soak.  He wonders whether crazing might be an issue.  (When it it not!)
