Underglaze Second Guesses
Posted 07 March 2013 - 10:57 PM
Any helpful suggestions would be appreciated. I have until Tuesday to come up with a game plan since thats when I go to class next and get to see what it looks like after firing.
Note to self: underglazes and acrylic paints do NOT react the same way.
Second note to self: make up test tiles to try these techniques out on first!

Yeah, underglazes don't act, exactly like paints, and glazes really don't act like paint. Underglazes have more of a paint quality, in fact, you can buy underglazes, in what look like, watercolor cake sets.

Oh did I remember to mention this is my first attempt at using underglazes?

The consistency of the underglaze in a jar will vary . . . you may need to add some water or glycerine/mineral oil to make the underglaze flow more smoothly.
A good black glaze can fix a lot of problems.
