Spectrum Raised Accent Color Squeeze Bottles


Raised Accent Colors are slip-based colors (or engobes) which are available in 2 oz. applicator pens with a fine plastic tip for decorating on greenware or bisque. They create embossed or raised designs on ceramic decorative work because the colors do not flatten out when they are fired.

HOW TO USE THEM - Before using the pen on your ceramic piece squeeze some out on a piece of paper to remove any air bubbles and to establish a consistent flow of color. When you are using the pen on a piece of greenware or bisque, hold the pen in contact with the piece. It makes it easier to control the writing than holding the tip above the piece and dropping the color onto the surface. Also the slight scratching of the surface improves the contact between the color and the piece. Do not hold the pen directly vertical when writing because this leaves no space for the liquid to flow out of the tip. Hold the pen at an angle to the surface so that there is an opening for the color to flow through. Because the color is quite thick you must write more slowly than with a pen so that there is time for the liquid to flow through the tip. You can create a large variety of line thicknesses by varying finger pressure and writing speed. The harder you press and the slower you write the thicker your lines will be.
