Basic Clay Slip Recipe:
Clay slips are a small amount of clay,
 mixed with just enough water, to form
a batter  like consistency.

To Prepare Colored Slips:  Add a small amount of pre - mixed glaze color
to your already prepared clay slip base.
Stir well and make sure the slip is free of lumps.  

A slightly thicker batter like consistency is better.
Paint your piece using an artist's brush or sponge.
* Use as an adherent too!
