I use ink on white clay a lot and I do find that the colours fade somewhat with baking. Purple sometimes looks more pink when it's baked too. The best thing is to do some experimenting and see what you like.

Those beads are amazing, Jan! I love the colours and the finishing are superb! Think I saw in an other thread that you used resin??!! If not, what glaze did you use?

Honestly - it is a full moon again or something?

I think if this carries on, I am going to have to suggest Jan is re-named Finbarr Saunders  ;D
