Glaze test dinner service

JS sent me this picture from our visit to the Royal Worcester museum in the summer. Painted some more glaze saucers and plates, using other plates to clean brushes and mix the glazes. Need firing now. Asked a fellow student what she thought of them, and was told that I can always fire the glaze off if I need to. Cheers.

Some of the red pieces have ended up looking unintentionally meaty I think. Which reminds me - I've been using turps and fat oil to mix the enamel glazes, and have been wondering about the hideousness of fat oil, and whether I can find an alternative. Will Google it now. Hope I don't discover anything too revolting.
