Just put about 5% iron oxide in the slip. Or you can just colour
slurry with terracotta clay. Cobalt is a little more complicated.
Cobalt is a toxic oxide. It is very strong in colour. It only takes
about 1% to make a strong blue and it gets everywhere.
. Try using natural earth coloirs. Red
and Yellow ochre. Whiting etc.
