How do you get that color in the cracks??

September 23, 2019

A question we often get asked is How do you get Color in the fractures??? Mystery revealed:

 

 

Lars' bowls fresh out of the 1st firing (bisque firing).

 

They look pretty good as they are but they aren't finished yet.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lars applies a colored slip or engobe to the surface with a paint brush and water so that the engobe flows into all the tiny fractures.

 

 

 

Finally, the surface is wiped clean with a sponge and if needed a light sanding. The piece is then primed for glazing (waxed, etc), glaze is applied and the piece is fired for a second time.  

 

 

 

 

And voila!
