Hi quick question:
I just glazed fired a few mugs to Cone 6. I've attached a photo.
I want to be able to re fire them so that I can personalize these mugs with a customer's name, using Duncan's French Dimensions (the puffy 3d glaze).
How would I go about this? Would I re fire at a lower temp, say cone 018?
I've not tried to use the French Dimensions on a fired glaze surface before, you might have a little trouble getting it to stay put, much like reapplying glaze to something for a refire.
However, being something I used quite a bit in the days of finishing and selling just low fire cast ware, do a test piece, and fire to ^06. This is the normal range for French Dimensions when
being applied over an unfired glaze. Of course, on the test piece doesn't turn out how you wish, then try a lower range. I think ^06 should do the trick for you.
Let us know how it goes. Can't wait to see the end results!
