3x Matcha Matte SH46 exterior, with a fourth coat on the face.
3x Lustrous Jade PC46 interior.

Another test. This time I wanted to find out more about mocha diffusion.
I applied a half dip into my STA (stick to anything slip) recipe is on the web, to a bone dry mug.
Then, holding the mug upside-down, I dripped a mixture of mason stain and vinegar on the wet slip.
It made these interesting marks, which I like, but wish I had better control of.
Once it dried again, I fired it to bisque and glazed.
Here are the glaze application notes for this piece:
3x Art Deco Green Interior
3x Ancient Copper Exterior
2x Clear Satin HF12 on the diffusion marks.
Even with the lighter application, and a 20 minute hold, the matte clear developed a bit of cloudiness.
The detail was a softened as well.
If anyone has thoughts about how get matte mid-fire clear, crystal clear, I would love to hear it.

This was a test mug. I wanted to know how sgraffito would work with slips colored with mason stains.
I liked the effect, but wanted a bit more punch so I added some Amaco Celadons into the mix.
Here are the glaze application notes:
3x Frosted Melon PC49 on the interior
3x Cherry Blossom C50 on the top half exterior
3x Marigold C60 on the bottom exterior and handle.
The whole mashup feels very Easter to me.
