To Slip or not to Slip ? that is the question.
Laura is probably going to pick me up on my grammar with this title.
But nether the less the question needs to be asked.
I just mixed up a new batch of Hyplas 71 Ball Clay
from a new 25KG sack
and look at the difference in colour.
the one on the left is the old bucket
and the new one on the right is much creamier in colour.
So the dilemma is do I use it ?
Will it come out the same colour
" I'm thinking not"
I slipped this dish with the old white inside
and the green outside.
and these Tankards are for an order
I've decided not to slip them until I've had some feedback
from some of my trusted friends on the blog.
also waiting in the wings are these three small harvest type jugs
that are at present being looked over by Bernard Leach.
So While I'm waiting for some potterly advice
I have got on with an order for Tapas bowls from
the local pub.
The Barrington Oak.
Thank You in advance,
as I am sure You will be able to help me.
