HOW TO COLOR SLIP WITH STAIN

 I use a lot of black slip as I create my color  designs, so I decided to photograph the process since it is the way to make any color of slip. The one HUGE difference is that I use my scraps for black slip and you would use your clean dry clay body.

If slip is too thin put it in a tray, cover with a cloth and let it sit overnight. The cloth will leach the water out of the slip leaving a beautiful thick slip. Put into a container.

DRYING SLIP









You can leave it longer until it is thick enough to use, then wrap in a damp cloth and put in plastic bag.
