Your guess would be correct Liam. Nep Sy was used as the body flux. White vinegar lightly brushed will help some, but usually migrating salts bleach out color. After washing try applying red iron oxide, and wiping off: to stain those areas.  Soluble salts in raw clay below.

It's what we call scumming. Is it a commercial body, or do you mix your own? if you're mixing your own, put 0.5% barium carbonate in your clay to prevent scumming. Blend the barium with water first so it disperses well, or you'll get white specks in the clay.
