Stain and Wax Technique
Here is another sample of a technique we did at the Glaze Techniques Workshop. This is the stain with wax and applied with a brush. (From Michael Kline who does it much better, and did a demo at the Clay Club July 2010.)
I then poured on a shino and sprinkled dry wood ash and reduction fired to cone 10.
I added stain and frit to Michael's recipe (or at least what I thought was his recipe.) I thought it looked better on our light stoneware and in a non-atmospheric firing.
