Hi, New to this site. Wow, what a source of info for potters. Am looking for
a recipe and any knowledge on colloidal washes. Have seen pictures from early
uk ceramic review 93 of terracotta pots clear glazed inside with the colloidal
wash (white) on the outside.

Can the wash be applied after clear glaze on unglazed area and fired in the
glaze firing.? Does the wash seal the surface?

Any assistance, info greatly appreciated, potter from down under.

Regards Pattie.
