How do I apply one-strokes?

Common faults

One-strokes that have curled or peeled away from the surface painted over a matte glaze are caused by too heavy an application of colour.
Streaked or running strokes painted with one-strokes may be caused by attempts to glaze over one-strokes before firing.
If one-strokes are too dark after being fired, you may be applying too much colour.
