high fire glass enamel paints
I am experimenting with using glass enamel paints. I have fired my first piece - a 10" clear circle with a design of yellow and green grasses and some white clover. It came out of the kiln much more faded in color than when it went in. I fired it to 1425 and held for 10 minutes. Does anyone have experience with using glass enamel paints? If so, how does one keep the strong color that appears when the paint is dry from fading in the kiln? Is 1425 too hot and did I hold too long?
