Today I am sharing a clip from Curt Benzle’s DVD Expanding Your Creative Palette with Colored Clay. In this clip, he gives tips on making colored clays from scratch. I have to admit, I haven’t dabbled much in this technique because it seemed like an such an effort to make the colored clay. But, as Curt explains, it is really not that bad, especially if you set yourself up with a segmented plaster drying bat. Easy Peasy!
Curt Benzle is one of the world’s leading experts on colored clays, a medium he’s been working in for nearly 40 years. In this Ceramic Arts Daily DVD, he demonstrates how to create colored clays and how to use them in various techniques such as neriage, nerikomi and slip.
