The glazes would be completely different because they would be oxidized and not reduced. A simple description would be a copper luster would turn

I use the pointed end of a modeling stick for trimming the excess clay off. First along the bottom side to the bat, then lift under it along the batt surface and remove it. Then cut off with a wire tool.

If it is bone dry it will flake and chip. Could you re-dampen the surface? Even just the surface would help reduce the flaking and chipping.

Yes, it may be a maturity thing or it may be that more people are using commercially accessible glazes. 

Not sure. I am always testing too but lately my tests are in alternative firings ideas. 

Good point TJR

I am applying terra sig to dry pieces and burnishing.


I hope to get some firing done if it cools down.
