Are one-stroke colours colour true in the jar?

Applying one-strokes

When using one-strokes you may find that colours look too light after your piece has been fired. This is caused by not applying enough coulour. If you apply too much however, there is a possibility of it popping off.
Do not apply one-stroke by flowing it on like glaze. Simply load your brush properly and apply it in smooth, even strokes.
All brush streaks will show when applying one-stroke. Even, smooth coverage is important.
