I was wondering how the glazing portion of the ceramic 3D printing works. I'm currently working on an ocarina design that has fairly small holes. I was just wondering how the glazing was done since the mouth piece portion has such a small opening and depending on how the glazing is done I may or may not have to change my design.

I work here
Last I had heard the glaze was done by hand dipping. And by the last line of the material overview, the glaze is about 1mm thick
