I ask for any and all advise on this please.
Some examples of my problems
In the picture above it is half way okay. This is a Pale Shino the colour and breaking is where I want it.
On about 1/2 of each dish I will get a sheen the other part is a flat rough surface.
This one is a Red Shino. The entire surface has no sheen all rough. On most of it the colour really never broke out upon the surface.
Libby's Shino below is a success of what I want the clean sheen glossy surface where the colour pops on the pot.
Okay several things
Placement in the kiln?
Viscosity of the shino?
I heard someone recommend adding salt to the Pale and red shino ( to help it melt better )
I have a pumpkin shino that is doing the same thing. I do not think it is an ingredient problem. Too much water not enough etc... I have dipped, sprayed and painted with the same mixed results that give me no clue.
I have seen the results of both of these shinos and they are wonderful. I followed the recipe exactly. Worried or even hoping I may have added to much water or something like this.
