Majolica continued. After Firing

Well, they are fired.  All in all, I am happy.  The white glaze is clear, smooth and luscious. The colors of the designs are brilliant and shiny with no rough spots.  I did get those nasty pinholes that are considered part of the charm of majolica, but frankly I would rather not have them.  What to do?  I have read everything I can get my hands on and next time I will bisque to one cone higher and glaze slightly thinner.
