Some methods I use for heavy texture:
Apply a stain or underglaze (50% iron oxide 50% rutile is great) to
the textured areas, and then use a wet sponge to wipe away the stain
from the high spots.
You can also use this technique with a glaze that contrasts nicely
with with your clay color.
For complete glaze coverage techniques, you can do the staining method
as above, and then apply a clear, or translucent glaze over the top.
I've found that black stain with a colbalt blue glaze, or celadon
glaze is very striking.
I believe someone already mentioned looking for a glaze that "breaks"
a different color on the edges. Woo Blue Bown is a good example of
this style of glaze; generally blue in the flat parts, and brown on

Sponge the indention and creases with a damp sponge before glazing.
It will reduce bubbles there.
