I have fired my first pieces, and I don't think they look glossy enough.
I used various clay bodies (Cone 5/6), underglazed the greenware with Amaco LUGs, then applied Amaco Sahara High Fire HF9 clear glaze to the bisque. It was brushed on, and I applied three coats. (They are miniatures, so I find brushing is much easier than dipping.) The pieces were then fired to Cone 5. (Bisque fired to Cone 04.)
None of the pieces turned out as glossy as I think they should be. I'm not certain if they should be glossier or not. It's difficult to tell. I have attached a photo of one of the pieces. Hopefully, you guys can tell if it looks glossy enough.
If it is not as glossy as it should be, what steps would I take to correct this in future firings? Wouldn't an additional coat of clear glaze possibly cause crazing?
