1. Painting the slurry mixed color with material that becomes the backgound. Coating six times while drying so that slurry turns into a state of even.
2. When the material dries, painting the pattern with unmixed slurry. Coating while drying, because bubbles are likely to be made with a large quantity of slurry in one time.
3. The painting by slurry is finished, then sweeping dust gently by a brush or a compressor to go to the unglazed process.
4. When unglazed work is finished, then sweeping dust, and applying the lustrous glaze. And next, it's baked again.
