  1. I have a cousin getting married next year and as their wedding gift I thought I would give her and her husband-to-be some pottery with their names on it (and maybe the wedding date). I've avoided putting names on pottery pieces in the past..so I'm a little out of my comfort zone here. My question is: how do I get the stamped letters to stand out on glazed pieces? Some of the options I have thought of so far are - * Stamp letters when the clay is still wet, paint underglaze on the letters at the bisque stage and then scrape/wipe away the excess on the raised area when the underglaze has dried. * Use stains on the lettering at the bisque stage and then wipe away the excess. * Alternatively I could stamp the letters at the bisque stage (dip it in underglaze and then stamp them) I still haven't figured out how I would glaze it after this though. May put a band of clear glaze over the lettering, wax the area and then dip it in a second glaze. Do you have any other suggestions on how I could approach this project?
