Techniques Using Slips

Techniques Using Slips
Not available
Slip is a form of coloured liquid clay which can be used for decoration

on its own or covered with glaze at a later firing. Slip is an ancient

concept and was used on Roman and Greek vases. There are many

techniques in regard to using slips such as sponging, marbling,

brushing on, using stencils, trailing, sgraffito and inlay amongst

others, and this book will cover them all using contemporary potters

work as illustrations. It will explain how to make up slips and

engobes, as well as ways of using them at higher temperatures and with

glazes. The book is illustrated with working potters in action

and many images of finished pieces.
