I have "white" Witgert 100 stoneware body. I guessmajority of you don`t use german bodies but anyway. There is no truly whitestoneware body in the neighbourhood, trust me I have been searching for over ayear. Today I opened my kiln with test pieces fired on cone 6-7 (2000 celsius)and the result is gray/brownish gray colour.
So I thought I could make it more white.
I`ve got white powdered engobe and white mason stain. What can Ido?
Could I do the slip and dip my pieces into it? Pint it over? Could I still useother undercolors after that?
I tried white engobe (I hope you can see on the inside of thesmall cup) but it is quite uneven, spotty although I painted it three times.And the surface is uneven.
Should I make slip with my body and mason stain and dip/spray it over?
What do you think is the best solution?
My plan was to make quite high contrast cups so I need at least white inside of a cup and maybe 1/4 of the outside.
