In Topic: Slip Trailing

22 August 2016 - 01:33 PM

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.

I also have health issues.I only do indoor shows in the spring and fall. All local. When I do a show I have a helper to do most of the lifting. They are paid in pottery. Even if you have to hire help and take a loss I would try a couple of shows. The experience of personally selling your work and return in information is priceless.

I started to think of glazing the same way I do throwing, it's a process with a learning curve. For me, I needed to devote as much time to glazing as I did to throwing before I had results I liked.
