So I messed up my first try at Terra Sig...didn't burnish just after applying. (Don't know what I was thinking). Reading in Sumi vonDassow's Low-firing and Burnishing book she describes in great detail about wetting the pot,and using oil, but not in conjunction with terra sig. For that, she only describes burnishing between coats or just after applying. I have tried polishing now, but the terra sig just seems to be rubbing off slightly. No sheen. Can I use either water or oil at this point or is it too late to do anything?
