Gary Jackson: Fire When Ready Pottery
A Chicago potter’s somewhat slanted view of clay & play

And speaking of colored slips…
one of mine was too close to the same color as my clay. I “tinted” it with some food coloring so it would be a lot easier to see as I was painting it on. The food coloring will “disappear” during the firing process… leaving the colored slip exactly where I want it.

Of course my slip is NOT quite this colorful. I kinda wish it was…
But the photo shows it in mid-mixing. And I unfortunately did not remember to take
an “after” photo of the final tinted slip.                     My bad.
