I have used the Amaco Velvet Underglazes on both lowfire and midfire pieces.
have used them under clear gloss glazes and under clear opalescent glazes, and
both have come out looking great. I apply them to both bisqued pieces and
to leather hard or drier pieces. Whan I bisque fire, I go to cone 04 for low
fire. The mid fire is bisqued to cone 06. The colors seem to come out
brighter when I apply the glazes over them. I haven't had any problems with
cloudiness at all.

Does anyone have experience patching or
otherwise repairing velvets tht have
flaked or discolored fired to cone 6
with no glaze applied?
