hi team - hopefully someone can help ive tried 3 different engobe recipes and am mixing in green stain (in a water and stain mix) . Unfortunately it keeps coming out with white splotches . The wet ingredients look oily in each as well. I have added cmc gum but that hasn’t helped. Is dispex an idea? Thanks in advance
Hi all, Currently I work with mid-fire slip and glaze my work 'traditionally' to achieve quite muted, natural tones. I'm thinking about making some wares that I want to be BRIGHT and flat in colour - like popping, primary colours. I'm wondering what the best way to achieve this level of colour would be? In my experience using stains in glazes never seems to achieve the flatness I'm after. I would suspect a coloured slip might be the answer but again using stains only seems to result in pastels - what is the average ratio of stain to slip to achieve a full bodied red for example? Or would I paint the work all over with an underglaze? Or something else. All suggestions appreciated!
