In Topic: Black Wax Resist

I have been looking into this style of tile also.  The only thing I could come up with was using Amaco velvet underglazes, then applying wax over it.  I thought if the underglaze wasn't dark enough to add some synthetic colorant.  Has anyone else tried this method yet?

I have also been looking into this.  I was planning to use Amaco velvet undergalze for the black line area, then going back over with wax before glazing.  I was thinking if the underglaze is not dark enough than adding some synthetic colorant.  Has anyone tried this method yet.  I know it seems time consuming but I havent come up with anything else.


In Topic: Slip Trailing

All I ever use is clay and water.  I use an old blender to mix.  I then put it through a screen. (150?)  I have made larger batches using a drill mixer.  I practice a lot.  Just using a batt.  Swirl, swirl, swirl, then wipe off.  I found too much epson salt caused the trailing to dry uneven.  Make sure what ever your slip trailing on is no drier than leather hard.
