The color that natural "ash" and "fire" make

We will make a glaze by ashing natural plants such as cedars, grapes and sunflowers. Ash can not be taken a lot at a time. Even if you collect a large number of plants and tree branches, you can get only a handful from there. Dissolve this in water, replace water many times, remove accessories and impurities, finally finish the ash glaze over a long time.
