Re: Clay Slips and colorants...

Other nice glazing experiences to give your kids:

commercial white majolica glaze with Amaco majolica decorating colors.
Thin them down a bit (stains) and they paint them like watercolor on top
of 3 coats of painted on (but not fired) white glaze. Beautiful
effects. Make sure you use some black accents....looks awesome with the
colors. I like to use some plain amaco black underglaze to get the
blackest blacks over the glaze. Thin it down and use it to add loose
outlines to some of your painted color areas for beautiful color.

Draw on tiles with Duncan's Black French Dimensions glaze. It leaves a
raised black line that doesn't bleed when you paint colored translucent
glazes over it. You MUST prefire the black lines on first, however.
Duncan Concepts glazes work great with this product, or Mayco Stroke and
Coat colors. You paint the stroke and coats or concepts glazes on AFTER
The black lines are fired on, then cover with the clear glaze that
Stroke and Coat or Duncan recommends. (the wrong clear can make some of
the colors look faded or dull.) We made a tile mural for our school
this way....GORGEOUS. The black lines look GREAT, and don't bleed.
