Underglaze and Slip

I threw a cylinder about 6" tall (the tallest I've even thrown...yeppi!!!!) and pushed it outward to form a bowl shape.

I then blow-dried the pot until the surface is non-shiny and applied a layer of blue underglaze. Again, this layer needs to be blow-dried. 

The final layer is this chocolaty black slip.

When it is leather hard, I will sand it off to reveal the under layers. Hopefully the blue will peek through and the black slip is truly black.
