What I do is make a wash of oxides or stains, I choose strong colors and make the wash weak so it will flow more in the grooves. After I brush that on I let it dry and then dip in clear glaze and that shows the details really nice.
hope that helps

Copper oxide in my carvings sell my works under matte glaze white or
green. apply and rub. The oxides in the base glaze will effect it
differently from turquoise : Strontium carbonate or his evil brother
the barium carbonate so the sodium potassium and their evil sister
other bases will effect different. Red iron oxide under falls creek
Shino just lovely
Perhaps, did not try, Cobalt under rich magnesia glaze will give violet
and so on.If you use white matte glaze and rub the way I tell you, the
"dirty parts" where you did not succeed to clean the rubbed oxide will
be half way between white and the effected color of the oxide( Effected
by the oxides of the base glaze)
I sell very few works.95% are such works
Ababi in the land of milk and honey
Trying to use honey in raku, Milk gives us money and time is money.
I have too much time. Does it work the other way around?
