HINTS
​#2
Tracing designs on your pieces.
Use this technique when using fired color.
Using white tissue paper and a pencil. Lay tissue over design trace with pencil. Take tissue pattern place on your piece and retrace with a sharpie fine tip. When you remove tissue paper your design is on your piece. Fill in color. You can replace your pattern to add more detail. When you fire your piece the sharpie will burn off. One more HINT if you apply 2 coats of Foundation on your piece first let dry then trace on pattern you will not have to clear glaze your piece just fire. (I like White for my background color when painting designs but you can use any color of Foundation or Stroke and Coat)
#1
HARD SEE WHERE YOU HAVE GLAZED
ADD A FEW DROPS OF FOOD COLORING TO YOUR GLAZE (NO WORRIES IT WILL BURN OUT DURING FIRING) NOW YOU CAN SEE IF YOU HAVE MISSED ANY SPOTS. 
#3
When cleaning your brushes use 
New Dawn Powerwash or dawn
Use BRUSH SCRUBBY GROOMING PAD to scrub your brushes then rinse well stand brushes up to dry.

#4
Foundations® Opaque (not able to be seen through; not transparent)
Broad palette of colors that produce a beautiful, smooth high gloss finish and can be intermixed for custom colors. Apply 3 coats.

Foundations® Sheer – These soft translucent glazes add a tint of color to your work, allowing surface textures or design to show through. Sheers provide darker accents in any crevices, which gives an antique effect.

Foundations® Matte – Fires to a beautiful, soft subdued matte finish. Matte finish will increase in glossiness .
