Coleman Colors: Rico's Red Slip (Gallon)
Description: The same great color as our CeraMist Underglaze Aerosols. Works on most clay bodies. Available in vibrant colors similar to Velvet Underglazes for less cost. Once they dry you can apply your favorite glazes.
Applications: These Slips/Underglazes can be applied to wet, leather, bone dry (spray) and bisque fired on. Or, brushed and sprayed onto bisque ware. Allow to dry, then dip into a glaze and fire. (see below and on jar directions).
Thick Application: to work that's just thrown: It works well applied thick on wet clay. I like to use this slip thick and apply it to clay work I've just thrown and draw into it with slip tools. Once it's firmed up it's pretty tough and I can then trim the pot, etc.
Medium Application: to work just thrown or leather wet/hard: Add a bit of water to them and spray them, dip them or brush them on.
Thin Application: to bone dry or work that's been bisque fired: (porcelain cone 010, b-mix cone 08, stoneware cone 06): Spray onto bisque ware. Or, thin brushwork onto bisque ware. Allow to dry and apply glaze directly over this slip.
Firing: They work from Cone 6 to cone 10 in oxidation and reduction.
Images: Glazes applied over Rico's Red Slip include: Chun Glaze (cone 10 reduction), CeraMist Clear Glaze (cone 6-10), Minty White, Amy's Ash Glaze and Butter-Ash Glaze.
