You win some, you lose some...

Do you remember this one?  I'm going to do a tile table, and these were the first tiles I put underglaze on.  The colors, when they're fired, are supposed to be:  chartreuse, avocado, violet, rose, orange, white, red, and turquoise.

Well, that isn't exactly what I got.  The turquoise, chartreuse, and orange turned out just fine.  The violet was sketchy, and the rose was horrible.  The problem with the violet was I didn't do enough layers.  I did 2, and it needed 3.  I think that the problem with the rose was that I mixed it myself.  Obviously not a very good idea.  Ordering more underglaze today, and will try this again.
