Question about Decorating Slip
Posted 05 April 2013 - 05:05 PM
I'll tell you what I want to do so maybe you can tell me if the simple: clay body, water and mason stain recipe will work for me. I want to do slip trailing on leather hard clay. I plan to use the same clay to make the piece as I use to make the decorating slip so they will be compatible shrinkage wise. To start I am going to use the decorating slip with no mason stain added I want the raised texture of the slip to cause the glaze to break over the slip trailed design. Will that work?

Most of us, in fact probably all of us on this forum don't hide any secrets. As Neil said, it's that simple. Sometimes with Mason stains, you can get a coarse bit of colour. Make sure you sieve through a 100 mesh sieve. There, I used sieve as a noun AND a verb. Go figure.
