I finally switched to underglazes the last few years I taught HS and would
highly recommend them. The fired colors are very close to the color in
the jar, so the students can visualize the results better. They were able
to do much finer detail work without all the running and dripping that can
occur during firing. Just use 2-3 coats for best coverage. I like the
matte finish, but they can dip or brush on clear glaze if they prefer
gloss.
