What is underglaze?
Underglaze is a combination of clay and colorants mixed into a paste.  Underglazes can be thinned with water.  They can be used much like tempera paints because colors can be blended, tinted and toned.  Underglazes are used when the artist wants to use color in a detailed fashion to decorate pottery.  Underglazes may be applied to greenware or bisqueware.
