So what is slip trailing anyway? Slip trailing is a very popular surface decorating technique among ceramics artists. Many potters and handbuilders use slips to add both color and texture to their pots. Slip trailing is the application of slip (clay mixed with water) to a clay surface using a bottle or other flexible vessel with a pointed tip. Unlike with brushwork, trailing involves a thicker, more fluid application, which can be used to created beautiful lines and raised textures. Trailing is not limited to slip, however, and can also be accomplished with underglazes, glazes, wax resist, etc.
There are many commercial trailing applicators available. We suggest you experiment with different types to gain a better understanding of their various potentials, as subtle differences in tip sizes and applicator bottles create unique effects. Please refer to each product for ideas on what could be accomplished with the various applicators.
