Learn How to Make Colored Clay
In this clip, an excerpt from his DVD Expanding your Creative Palette with Colored Clay, Curt Benzle gives tips on making colored clays from scratch. Glaze isn't the only tool for adding color to your ceramic work. Mixing the color right into the clay is a really cool alternative.
If you have been interested in learning how to make colored clay, this video is exactly what you need. I have to admit, I haven't dabbled much in colored clay techniques because I thought it would be a huge 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! Now I can't wait to give colored clay a try! - Jennifer Harnetty, editor.
