    Just completed 9″ plate with a large portion of background being this periwinkle blue. Did a tack fuse to 1340º. Of course when I saw the boring gray color after firing, I researched and discovered this frequently happens unless devit used or clear glass laid on top (back side with clear glass is fine). Is there ANYTHING I can do short of a full fuse to get the top back to the blue? Devit and fire again? What  is the lowest possible temp to keep contour and ‘burn off’ gray? If I lay clear glass on top of this blue portion I’m afraid it will distort piece. Any tips or help is greatly appreciated!


    P.s. I WISH I had known that this could happen before firing… 20 hrs of layout work involved with this piece :(


    Are you sure this is not Bullseye’s Steel blue?

    Well I guess company could have gotten it wrong, but according to the cat# ordered it was periwinkle. I admit it looks just like that link you provided.  I just used a dremel tool and basically removed the gray.  My plan now is to spray with devit before I slump it into plate mold and pray it doesn’t come back. Whatcha think? …. thanks!
