How many times can I china fire?

China Firing

Check with your instructor. Usually you pay half the cost of your greenware to bisque fire, and then half of the cost of your greenware to china fire, no matter how many firings. My thoughts are to fire as many times as you feel comfortable. If you are having a bad brow day and finally get one side really good, fire it on. Or do just a few basic strokes to get you started, fire it, and then fill in the extra hairs. This also allows you to change shades in the brow hairs to give it a realistic look.
