Magic Slip Tool: Small Slip Comb
Description: Supple and compact. Our Small Slip Comb is perfect for slip decorating on cups, tea bowls and most smaller items with decorating slip. I work with several colors when I make tools. When you order my tools you receive the color currently happening on my workbench.
Creating "marks" on the surface of the clay body (or into an added layer of slip), catches the glaze. Some glazes have the potential to give different effects if they pool thick, medium, or stretch thin over a raised area. Our reason for using decorating slip is to create an interesting topography on a surface to get the most potential of glaze effects from a glaze as it moves across an uneven surface as it melts in the kiln.
