Six more vessels started. If these all make it through I'll have twelve ready for pit firing which is enough for the first run. Used a technique using veggie oil to seal my burnished pieces and it seemed to work quite well, but I'm still going to wait twenty four hours to make sure before applying it to everyone else.
Nothing like going mental when a technique fails after you think you've done.
And I was right. The technique only really works if you've pre-burnished, wait until the pot completely dries, burnish again, then veg oil, then burnish again. Now you end up dealing with a surface that is close to glass as one can get.
