Wax and Bisque

The bit'o'blue over the design is blue food coloring in the wax resist. This lets me know where I've got coverage.

Wax on... This is going to be cool!

While that's drying... it's time for another load of bisque.

I've really got to load "Half Pint" up to keep things moving.

I am using highwater redstone with a b-mix slip and sometimes a porcelain slip.
The amber came out super dark even on the slip.
Am I putting on enough slip or should the glaze be sprayed or very, very thin?
food coloring-smart!

Pretty darn thin is the way to go. A 2 to 3 second dip should do it. You should be able to clearly see the design outline still after pulling it out of the glaze.
I tested 2 yunomi with a thick dip and the design was unreadable.
