Clearing out a few cases of Unicorn Plaques, code MB130, which we know to have a slight risk of a very faint hotspot on the surface. 

 

A hotspot is a casting fault where the liquid clay hits the surface of the mould too long, and create a discoloured circle which is usually only apparent after clear glazing.  As you can see from the photo, this particular issue is very subtle, but if the unicorn is left unpainted and clear glazed, the marking is in a place on the back of the unicorn that might be noticeable.

 

Solution = base coat item before painting.  Then simply treat like any other piece, clear glaze, fire to 06..
