I had tried this before, and thought it was okay. This time I tried it =
and applied the glaze quite heavy, 4 brushed coats, each coat applied in =
a different direction, although right down at the foot only two coats. =
It turned out to be very, very nice. Lots of depth, rich tones of dark =
blue that does indeed "float" over top of brown. I fired a full cone 6 =
and the pot was placed at the bottom of the kiln. Kiln cooled slowly to =
1900F, held for one hour.
