wine snobs don't like opaque goblets because you can't observe the color.

your original post included these 

How important is color?  iron red, deep orange, tan to brown range...etc?


Is light speckling more attractive than heavy speckling?

these are responses to the firing and types of clays mixed into the batch.



In Topic: Clear Stiff ^6 Majolica Glaze Please

no. majollica uses overglaze as a rule. The brush work is what makes it so recognizable.By imbedding your colorants into a glaze you may lose the stiffness.

You'll need a clear/transparent glaze which may not be stiff just by it's characteristics.

I have used this. It is fairly stiff.

It works best applying overglaze colors on top of the glaze. They stay brighter that way. Use start or hairspray to stiffen the glaze before applying overglaze. use Linda's recipe of stain and frit or gerstley borate for the overglaze.
