Pete VanderLaan is on a distinguished road
When I was still working, I had an entire line of vases using pre imaged along with our own patterns and it was all furnace worked. It had to be premium colors and it had to be worked in with a cold furnace. It grayed up instantly in the gloryhole. Done slowly, it worked very well, always cased in clear. I made zanfirico cane and murrinis in them as well. Sort of like Hay extender for horses. We used hundreds of sheets a year.

Mary beth uses it still in her jewelry and fires to about 1365F for her basic fuse. Once the clear is on, and we make our own clear, she does what she likes. Too many clears devitrify.
