This request was a while ago, but I kept forgetting to bring my book from my
dusty studio to my relatively dust-free computer room at home.

I've used it for years. He says to spray one thin. I brush it on thin and have
had good results. No clouding (if thin enough), no crazing (if clay body is
vitreous,otherwise you get delayed crazing). To alleviate this problem with my
clay body I now bisque my underglaze decorated ware high ( cone 01) and glaze
fire with above glaze at 04.
