Try substituting red, blue or yellow stains for the colorants used in the other slips. Hi Judy, Try using the slip recipes that you already have, subbing stains for the existing colorants. For the red, try an encapsulated stain, for the blue you should try cobalt in several strengths, and for the green, many green stains work well. Do line blends to find the correct percentages of the colorants. If you want to try other slip recipes, look in the clayart archives; there are many good recipes there. I have done a small amount of experimenting with the addition of stains, but not striving for especially bright colors. I have not been able to get the yellow past a very pale yellow, also the blues come out somewhat pastel, or brighter, but still light. The brightest blue that I have gotten is with cobalt. I will look back at my notes and let you know which specific stains I haved used, if you want. Some were Mason, and a few were something else sold through Axner. The colors will come out brighter if they are painted onto a white clay. I am running some test on these.

Hope one of the PMI ones work.

How do I make colored slip for use in a slip trailer? I'm working with stoneware to be fired to cone 5. I want to apply it to my greenware while still wet on the wheel. I'd like it not to drip while spiraling down my pot while on the wheel. I assume that I dip in clear or colored glaze after it has been bisqued. I have gone to great lengths to make slip using Robin Hopper's recipe. People in my old studio laughed that I was taking dry ingredients and making slip in this manner. It was, however, great slip and stuck to everything. I think if you google his slip recipe you should be able to find it on-line or at the very least in one of his books. Now however, what I do is take some of either my reclaimed clay or cut off slices of the clay body I am using, dry it throughly, put it in a bucket with some water and let it slake. You don't want to add too much water but just enough to really cover the dried slices. After a few days of slaking, I then take a hand held mixer or you could use a blender and simply mix it up to the consistency I want. I try to really make sure if I am adding Mason stains that I mix these really well so no spots or speckles come through in the initial bisque firing. This is quick and easy and serves all my purposes. I store the slip and simply use it as required. For example, I will take some out of the storage container, mix it up again well and add my unique colorants bit by bit as needed. Works great for me. I am sure it would work equally well in a slip trailer but you may need to water it down to the right consistency. Not so watery that it runs but not so thick that it clogs the end of your bulb or bottle. If using clay other than porcelain for this process, I would recommend screening your slip after slaking and before adding Mason stains. This way you will filter out the grog in the clay and have a nice smooth slip to match your clay body. It works great for getting the viscosity you need for brushing or trailing although it will thicken up overnight. When the slip is too thick it's amazing how little water is needed to get it right for the job at hand. This is my recipe for coloured slip. Ball clay powder 35 parts;Kaolin powder 25 parts; Potash Feldspar 20 parts; silica 15 parts. I mix this into water guesstimate amount , then when it has 'slaked down", i sieve it, and then it can settle so that extra water can be skimmed off so that the consistency is as you want it. I end up with a largish amount of slip, which I then decant into separate containers, and i mix different coloured underglaze powders into the different containers. I use this for painting on leather-hard ware. I have used it for banding onto the pot while it is still on the wheel, but you tend to contaminate the colours, as with each brushstroke, you are putting some of yr thrown clay into the slip bottle. This can also be put into little squeezee bottles for slip trailing. You will get used to what different consistencies you need for the different applications. In the beginning, I followed the recipe exactly, now I just use an approximation. Thanks to everyone for their great responses!! I'm going to start slip trailing immediately! Do you guys suggest adding mason stains over chemicals like cobalt carbonate or copper carbonate? I'm just asking because I own these already I've made slips using both, what I've noticed is that the copper carb. I've never worked with cobalt carb that wasn't already blended in something reacts with the overglaze but the mason stains don't tend to react as much. I suppose its going to depend on what is in the mason stain, but the copper carb turns a clear glaze green. VERY pretty, but just something to be aware of. ETA: I'll admit most of what I've worked with is terra sigs, which form such a thin layer they mostly burn out under glaze. When I do slip trailing, I just ball mill my slip, it does the job of defloculants without getting gummy in the bin. I also use Karen B's approach. Does this Robin Hopper's slip recipe exist anywhere or am I being 'thick'? Also is there any trade I can do for Pyrax? I do a lot of slip trailing with an applicator. If I want the slip to stand up firmly after I have sieved the slip I add a few drops of darvan and then add more ball clay, or some of the dried clay that I am throwing with till a thickened consistency. All the ball clay makes this a nice slippery slip. Thanks, yea that is the same as the one I managed to find. Does this fire to a white or more buff colour?
