Clay leaves glazing techniques! Translucent glazes?

These tiles were done with on white clay, then bisqued to cone 05. I then sponged on some terra sigillata with mason stain in it (the three with green background and the top maple leaf tile)or iron oxide, then I gently buffed the terra sig. and sponged off the excess oxide so it popped the design. You can see I went back and added more color (blue against the green first layer) to the hydrangea flowers. You could add more color to the leaves in the same way, its easy to do and comes out very watercolor like. I finished these by firing to cone 5 in an electric kiln.
