Low fire glaze vs. High fire glaze


So what's the difference?

I usually use high fire glaze, but in the past years when I've networked with local art teachers, they've been turning me onto trying low fire glaze. So I've been trying to phase out my stock of high fire and try the low fire.. but there are some things I just wanted to make sure are correct from my understanding:

1. Low fire glaze has a more painterly quality to it?
2. Can low fire glazed pieces touch each other in the kiln?
3. Low fire glaze can be mixed like paint?
4. Low fire glaze can be used on high fire clay?

If someone could help clarify / verify these statements, I'd really appreciate it! I already told my students they'd be my little guinea pigs for this glaze I bought, but I just wanted to have somewhat of an idea of what might happen when firing. Thanks for any input in advance!
