  1. I’m interested in doing more. I had an instructor who could help me, but he’s since left the studio where I take classes, and none of the current instructors do it and can troubleshoot for me. The studio DOES still have the slip trailing and decorating slip, though, in both white stoneware (screened to remove grog) and in Porcelain. For the most part, I’ll be doing it on top of white stoneware from Standard, which has some grog in it. 13% shrinkage rate. I was watching a video of a noted potter who does a lot of it, and bought a henna application kit that she recommended, that came with 16 different tips. (The Xiem kit that the studio had seemed to be perpetually clogged or dirty, so I figured I’d better buy my own.) I imagine most of them I can’t use for slip trailing, but some of them look like the ones that came in the studio Xiem kit. She also mentioned using a deflocculant to get a smoother flow. Looking at the local pottery place website, they list Darvan # 811 and Sodium Silicate. Question 1: Which deflocculant is better for slip trailing? I know that Sodium Silicate has other decorating uses, like that surface crackle effect; but that has not been done at this studio since that first instructor left. How do you know how much deflocculant to add? Someone told me also that it goes bad quickly. Do deflocculants have any other uses? Question 2: If I do porcelain slip trailing on top of white stoneware, do I need to worry about different shrinkage rates? Or should I stick with using white stoneware slip on top of white stoneware? The studio white stoneware is more of a creamy color rather than white, so I thought the porcelain might show up better under a glaze. They are all within one % point of each other. I don’t know the porcelain # offhand, but I can find out. I also use Standard 266 Dark Brown, shrinkage rate 12.5%, which I’m testing applying porcelain slip onto in layers with a brush, then smoothing with a rib, to get certain glaze colors to (hopefully) work out better. I’ve tried white stoneware slip on this, but I’m finding it harder to get it smooth. Maybe deflocculant is something I should add to the slip for this use as well. Thanks for your help!

    Hawaiian Red clay from Laguna decorated with white stoneware slip. I glazed the inside in Dynasty Red and the outside in clear to give it a great iced gingerbread look.

    The outside of the pie plate I decorated with a pattern of leaves in white slip. The bottom I glazed clear to show the contrast between the white slip and the Moroccan Sand underneath; the outside of the pie plate I glazed in Deep Sienna Speckle, which reminds me of pumpkin pie.

    Pie plate slip cast in white stoneware from Laguna. I painted three coats of Moroccan Sand slip on the inside and bottom of the plate. I carved an intricate design of leaves and vines around the bride and groom's initials and wedding date to show the white clay underneath the taupe clay. This was glazed in clear.

    Having a mad and intense slip trailing session. I'm making these mugs specially as gifts for my husband's coworkers.

    This is a special pie plate made with two tones of casting slip. I then decorated it with leaves and swirling vines in slip and sgraffito carving on the inside.

    Another view of my wildflower batter bowl, with several of my tiny wildflower teaspoon rests. I have a whole bouquet of them to put in my Etsy shop!

    This is one of my very first wheel-thrown pieces. It's made with Speckled Buff from Laguna and slip trailed with white. Even just in the three months since I threw this I can see a huge leap in both my throwing and slip trailing. So grateful to finally see progress!

    The holder on the left was done all in white clay and slip. The mountain design was washed with iron oxide and received only one coat of the glaze I used on the rest of the piece. The holder on the right has mountains painted on in a Hawaiian Red slip, and otherwise received the same glaze and treatment. I like them both. I was hoping to find an alternative to the iron oxide wash, which can be a mess.
