Unfired painted ceramics
A friend gave me a gift a few years ago. I had admired some small greenware figures. Well, she painted them (with acrylic paints I think) and gave them to me as a gift. I was very pleased and flattered, but truthfully I don't like the look of the acrylic paint. The colours are wonderful, but I like the "glazed" look when pieces are fired. I have seen some "glazes" that go over the paint and dry, but I want the shinier, glassier look.
Is there a way to glaze over acrylic and then have them fired? Or will it ruin them? I know where to bring them for the firing, but am loathe to ask their advice because I think they would tell me to fire them anyway -once you pay the fee there is no guarantee.
Any help would be appreciated!
