cobalt blue decoration

McCoy, Jack on fri 31 jan 97

How were the cobalt blue decorations applied on old style pottery? Did
they use a standard glaze mix (with cobalt carbonate added) as a painted
underglaze? Or did they mix a the cobalt carbonate with a clay slip and
apply before glazing?

Thanks in advance,
