Re: Acrylic paint in the kiln

Hi Wendy,
What surface effect were you going for with acrylic paint? It
usually comes out looking more like a stain on bisque ware than a
bright opaque surface. You can try spraying the acrylic surface
with a clear acrylic gloss spray to add some gloss to the projects.
