Here are some of the colors I got at Cone 6, which surprised me, because they are so bright!

Question: I am now working with earthenware, which I will coat with a low fire majolica whitish glaze, and then underglaze. Can I put the majolica on greenware, or does it have to be bisqued? Thanks,
Nancy

This is a link to Linda Arbuckle's majolica handout; she talks about applying glaze near the end. Check out her website for a wealth of info on majolica (her specialty) and other techniques and advice.

Don't use underglazes on the Majolica base. Underglazes do not melt like a glaze, and will remain dry and rough.

Actually, per Linda Arbuckle (and some confirmed in my own testing...)
"Some AMACO Velvet underglazes work for decorating on top of majolica base glaze: Mist Grey, Jet Black, Rose, Maroon, 

Leaf Green and 350 Orange, Amethyst, Violet, Real Orange, Lt. Red, Red. Too refractory to use: Electric Blue, Pearl Grey, 
Ivory, Hunter Green, Deep Yellow, Straw, Lt. & Med. Pink . Test others."

So what do you use? Clear glazes with Mason stains?
