How did you get the shine on there? Was it the paint?  If so what kind?  I've only seen stuff like that come from unique kinds of covering and now you got me curious.

it's clear glaze :D
basically a chemical-mixture that becomes a sort of glass when heated to a very high degree
The red and black are "under glazes" which are colors painted on bisque-wear [clay after 1firing] before coating with a clear-glaze and being fired again

Cool.
I'm surprised you didn't paint the base blue though.  It would be hard to see the numbers, but it would have the feel of the majestic fish swimming through the pond.

I debated it, but the original bg/base had a slight pattern to it
sadly it didn't show up after it was glazed ;-;

What was the pattern, he asked curiously?

a bunch of curved lines  making a spiral of sorts
it's looked like an abstract rose
