Collection: Engobes

These clay coloring slips allow for the creation of hue with a dry, earthen texture when applied to greenware. Fired to Cone 5, they become vitreous. Ideal for accentuating the natural color of the clay and for adding decorative accents. Do not contain lead, and are safe for food and beverage containers when properly fired. Available in liquid pints only.

Note: An engobe and a slip are similar, and sometimes people mix them up. A slip is colored clay, while an engobe also has a small amount of flux added which makes it melt slightly, like a glaze. It is part way between a slip and a glaze.
