Florida Clay Slip Result
Here's what the fired Florida clay slip test bowl looks like. The fired slip color is almost the color of rusty metal, so I'm planning on combining some slip decorated flower with rusty metal. Using a clear satin glaze over the top with white stoneware gives the bowl a soft, almost vintage look, which I like.
I decided to use more of the Florida clay slip on a larger bowl. This bowl is about 3 x 10 inches and I'm drying it slowly.
This flower tile was inspired by the passion flower two posts ago. The background clay is a tan speckled stoneware but looks much darker since it's wet. White clay might have been a better choice I'll have to make another one.
This red clay bowl is about 4 x 9 inches. I decided to texture the bottom of the bowl to see how I like that. Meanwhile yard sales are exhausting especially since it's hot as hades outside but we did have a great turnout. Half a day tomorrow and that's it.
