|#4||Milk firing at a temperature of 300°C (572°F). The natural milk moisture evaporates and the milky fat clogs the ceramic pores. This step takes one more day.|
|#5||Gnosis coating (a mixture of linseed oil + beeswax) fixes the milky layer and adds contrast to the product. This is considered the final major step that requires one more day.|
