We went to Aramoana today

and I found some pretty red stones! I hope they can serve as oxides to smear my pots in with!!!
Too, I found that beautiful subtle purple in hard-clay-rocklike shape...
1) If I fire the clay-body pot to higher temp first,
2) THEN do a low temp fire with the oxides, the purple will stay purple

3) How will I then make the oxides stick? What do I mix them with.... AND
4) I should preferably have a white claybody so oxides show, no?
