What is Overglaze?

Overglaze is a term that is used when making pottery. Overglaze is actually the outer layer or coat of glaze that is painted on last over pottery. It refers to the group of colors, either lusters or metallics that are applied to a surface that has already been glazed and fired once before. After the overglaze is applied, it is then fired to a temperature that is much lower than the first time it was glaze fired.
