This has happened to me and I did refire with transparent glaze...came out great, even over the gloss glazed areas.

  Hi, everyone,
  I have some questions that I'm hoping can be answered before tomorrow. By mistake, I gave my 4th graders underglazes to use with gloss glazes for their leaf plates. Some colors are shiny and some dull, so I think that's what happened.

  With two more classes work yet to be fired, here's my questions: Before firing, can a clear transparent glaze be put over both colored glazes- the gloss and the dull? Can the plates be re-fired once they have been glazed-fired? If so, I would ask those students who wanted to put a transparent clear glaze over the dull parts and re-fire. I fire at cone 06 and the kiln reaches around 1828 degrees, I believe, and completes the glaze firing in about 6 1/2 hrs.
  Thanks for any help you can give me...
