Clay Slip

How to Make Clay Slip

Slip - is liquid clay, it is used to join pieces of clay together like glue, it can be poured into molds or used for decorating. 

1. To make slip you break off some chunks of clay and let them completely dry out. You can dry your clay chunks in the sun or simply leave them in the open air overnight. 

2. When they feel dry put them into a small plastic container and add enough water to cover the clay.

3. The clay will break down absorbing the water, it will look soft and mushy. 

4. This mushy stuff is the slip and it is applied between clay pieces to glue them together.
