Every now and then (Ok, so maybe it’s often) I like to try something new. I wanted to add some texture to my pieces without using lace, or in addition to it, so I thought I’d give slip trailing a go.
Slip trailing is using liquid porcelain (knows as slip) to leave raised dots or lines on a piece. When fired, it fuses with the piece and becomes one. This technique is very time consuming and requires a steady hand, but I really enjoy it and it gives a piece a totally different look.
