SH Satin White poured inside. SCM Cool sprayed all over outside thicker around the upper shoulder. Sponged off area with grooves on top. Hana's Blue Ash covering the bottom up to the middle section. 2D-Blue on the top section with the grooves. Then Apricot was layered over the whole upper section followed by a lyre of Hana's Blue ash. Finally a layer of Juicy Fruit No-Iron over the whole piece. A heavier coating was sprayed about the middle. All spraying was done with an airbrush. Firing to ^6-7 with holds and slow cooling to 1500 before natural cooling with bottom exhaust fan going all the time. Single firing too. Clay body is Coleman Porcelain.

I love the delicate glazing and line it's a nice change from the heavy runny glaze that is popular right now.     Denice

What a nice glaze; tell me more about it. What is your first layer of glaze, what did you spray on top?  So pretty!
