Miss Chipmunk is All Dressed Up

I'm happy with the way the glaze turned out on this little chipmunk, especially the "lace" insert on her dress.  I impressed the clay with a stamp I have and used a glaze that pools in the low spots to be sure that the pattern would show.  The flower is a vintage porcelain earring of mine.  I think it's the "1928" brand from the 70s or 80s.  The only thing that I wish had come out differently is the glaze for the dress itself.  It's a combination of turquoise and brown but I wish more turquoise had come out.  It probably has to do with how thick the glaze was applied, but I'm not sure in what way thicker would vary from thinner.
