Hello all. I am new to this server so I wanted to say HI get my personal
info out of the way and hopefully get some ideas on slip and/or surface
My name is Norm. I am a college student and have been throwing for about two
years. This quarter I am working on surface imbelishment.
I need to find some info on formulations of slips, powders, stains,
colorents. My prof. wants me to come up with some thing we can try.

Try the Library at the college you are attending. I'll wager that you'll
find quite a lot of information on slips and other surface treatments for
pots and other ceramic objects. It is your profs job to give you some
direction and guidance in your pursuit as well, not just tell you to hit the
pavement and come up with the goods. Some teachers will even take the
radical initiative of giving you a list of preferred references to peruse.
Try The Ceramic Spectrum by Robin Hopper. Stoneware Glazes- A Systematic
Approach by Ian Currie. Contemporary Pottery Decoration by John Gibson.
Pottery Decoration by Thomas Shafer, to name a few books. You can also look
through Ceramics Monthly and Studio Potter issues at the library if you
don't have them. Claytimes, Contact, Pottery in Australia, Ceramics
Technical, Ceramic Review. The list is BIG.
good luck, Craig Martell in Oregon
