Red Figure vs. Black Figure Vases

the major difference is the way that the two vases are made

the red figure is made then same way as the black figure but only that the engobe used to paint is painted around the actaul picture causing the actaul picture to turn red when hired in a kiln., the black figure is made so that the actaul painted picture is the engobe, that hardens and turns black leaving a ref background.
