Im hoping for some suggestions on how to improve the colour intensity of coloured slips (without using a shiny glaze)
I want to achieve the (wet stone look) Ive always worked with sigilattas which im drawn to for there surface texture.
So im wanting to get a similar surface whilst using coloured stains?

What temperature are you using? What type of clay body?
What type of Glaze?What type of colorants for your slips?

All these are relevant.

You want to be looking up vitreous slips. Plenty of recipes for your relevant temp.I've used some, but not currently.

so are you wanting to color terra sigs?
You can use mason stains for that. They can be added after the making of the sig.

If you used "colored slip " will it stain your molds?

I use mason stains in my colored slips. The biggest problem is the need to constantly stir them. If anyone has a suggestion to solve that issue, I would love to hear it.

Yeah I thought vitreous slips might be the ticket. Do they give a different surface than spaying a thin layer of frit?
