Just wanted to thank everyone who responded to my underglaze dilemma.
You all gave wonderful suggestions.
Here is the update. I have made up about 50 test tiles and am trying
different things. I have applied duncan EZStrokes and Concepts to greenware
and fired to 04 (experimenting with different thicknesses.) Colors turned
out great. The EZstrokes fired with a rough finish (like dry paint) while
the Concepts fired with a glossy finish. Next, I have applied the Concepts
to 04 bisque tiles in varying thicknesses. I have about 3 transparent ^5
glazes that I am going to try. (THANKS everyone who gave me transparent
recipes!) I will apply the transparent to ALL the tiles and fire to ^5.
Then we'll see what turns out the best.
I think it may take longer to find a transparent I like than getting the
underglazes right! :-)
