Casting slip as engobe?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!  I haven't really found an answer to this question, so post it here.  I work in earthnware (my school doesn't have an kiln hot enough for more, sadly...).  I would like to start some slip casting work, and was wondering, for financial reasons, if I could also use my casting slip as an engobe, if I add in some mason stain.  Would there be any chemical reason why this might not work?

Thanks to all in advance for your answers - much appreciated!

why not just add water to some of your basic clay to form a slip.  then add color.   there should be no adverse effects if you are using the same materials.  earthenware clay and the same earthenware clay with color will give you a clay with the same properties as the original clay.
