Hi - I am kind of new to posting on the lists, but have been lurking for awhile. I am
happy I have started posting because I have learned a lot form some friendly
experienced potters!

Anyway, I am interested in making a blue terra sig. I did a wood-fire last year and
someone used a blue terra sig. It came out of the wood kiln absolutey beautiful!! I
have a piece done now, that is ready to be fired and I can't picture it without the blue
terra sig on it.

So, how would I go about making this? Especially for high fire. Just mason stain? I
am kicking myself for not asking him how he made it.

Any info would be appreciated.
