Hello I used a series of 4 glazes layered on a recent set of plates. Every single one of them has crawled, especially on one particular colour which I’m guessing is the thicker application when layered?

I’ve refired plates before and they’ve broken right down the centre. I’ve seen people on here say they’ve had success with refiring and wondering if there’s a recommended technique.

I am having trouble with Amaco's Potters Choice glazes crawling when layered. I have used them for years and have never had a problem until about a year ago.

I’ve never seen this on anything but these mugs.
