There's got to be an easier way

One disadvantage of making hundreds of beads is that you have to glaze and fire hundreds of beads. I've got about 70 beads sitting in a box next to me with a glaze on them that I've never used before. I sure hope that I like it once it's fired. If I like the color but not the finish, I could etch them, but I'd rather not have to invest the extra time.

I worked some on polkadots in the studio this evening. Once I'm done with the ones that I'm working on, I'll probably stop that for a while and focus on some colored porcelain beads. It's great to work with color that doesn't have to be applied with a brush and suspended during firing.
