Decorating slip is coloured liquid clay which can add a decorative element to your work. It is suitable for use on both Earthenware and Stoneware clays as it can be fired anywhere between 1000c and 1300c.
Apply slip to leather hard clay with a sponge, brush or slip trailer, then leave to thoroughly dry before firing. Different colours can be mixed to achieve a wide range of shades. After biscuit firing, a clear transparent glaze can be applied to the piece to enhance the colours.
The product image above is a representation of the colours you might expect when firing the slip to 1000c and 1300c. As shown, the colour is a lighter, more pastel shade when fired to 1000c compared to the bright colour achieved when firing to 1300c. No colour clarity is lost when this slip is applied to terracotta or dark coloured clay.
Hot Clay Tip: Use sgraffito tools to scratch slip away, creating an eye-catching pattern.
