Making Porcelain Prints

Making Porcelain Prints

Judy uses the whitest porcelain clay available as the background for her hand drawn and screened prints. Using the slab roller, a 3 millimeter thin piece of clay is made.  Leaving the rough rolled edges on, the clay is then screen printed onto while still wet.

Our trick to getting a good consistency to the ‘ink’ is to mix the black stain with honey.  Then using old credit cards as the scrapper.  It’s funny to actually sit back and look at the ways we do things!

After the bisque firing to harden the clay, color highlights are added.  Generally a free form stroke of Copper Red & some lines & dots with a rubber glaze trailer.  Once fired again we mount the print onto a matt board ready for framing.
