Slip Trailing

porcelain slip  dots over greenware cassius basaltic clay

5" tall x 1.5" wide

I'm continuing to make pieces for my first kiln load. Today I tried my hand at slip trailing. I wanted a high contrast against the dark clay, so I made some porcelain slip and experimented with it. Actually I painted the porcelain slip onto these green ware vessels.

Can't wait to see how my dot and stripe vessels turn out. I'm really having fun experimenting with new techniques. Next, I'd like to try some more slip trailing using a bulb syringe or a slip trailing bottle.
