Coloring Clay

Recommended Posts

How do I color clay the way Richard Gill colors his plaques? The attachment shows an example of his work. Is the color added on raw, bisque or fully fired clay? What to use - Underglazes commercially made or colorants mixed with a frit? I have 17 different colors of colorants I could use and will be experimenting using them.post-64467-0-54151300-1480858250_thumb.jpeg

You can go either way. Making underglazes with a frit would be cheaper in the long run. Val Cushing's ^04 recipe is frit 3110 25%, EPK 25%and stain 25% The 25% stain would depend on what shade you really want.

. It comes to 75 but not my recipe.

COmmercial underglazes can sometimes be pro blematic. Sometimes they scale, or flake. many people in Texas love Mayco underglazes. THey get good results. Amacoalso has several good lines of underglaze for different temperatures.
