Slip trailing is a technique that reached its peak in western pottery
during the 17th century. Slip trailing was frequently used for
pattern decoration or personalizing.
Potter’s Slip is an updated version of this unique material-using
ingredients that allow it to perform over a number of clay bodies
ranging from Cone 06 to 8. The 4 oz. bottle of clay slip is conveniently packaged in its own slip trial bottle.
Slip Trails are applied to either wet clay or a wet “field” of base
slip. Best results are achieved before the clay piece has reached
the leather hard state. Thinned with water, Potter’s Slip can be
used as a brushed on underglaze decoration on greenware or
bisque ware. Colored ceramic slips for sale are available in 2 sizes for your slipware pottery.
