Would someone be so kind as to walk me through the making of colored clay preferably with already manufactured ingredients like mason stains. Some years back I tried adding the powdered stain directly into my clay body but with only minimal success... What has worked for you?

When I color my clay, one of the easiest ways I usually do it is just to add the mason stains to my slip in my scrap buckets and blend in with a jiffy mixer. simple. When you reclaim as normal ... you have an easier time wedging.

Here is a link to my website where I show how to color clay with mason stains and how to use it.


I have also written articles on it ... Check the January issue of PMI.
If you have further questions, just ask.
