Stamps & Rollers
Roll or press beautiful textures into your pottery. MKM rollers and stamps are made with fine grained wood and carved very precisely. This wood is leftover from the furniture industry and is ‘recycled‘ by MKM to make small tools. Each texture roller and stamp is finished with pure tung oil.
Japanese Tissue Transfers
The transfers can be applied on clay at any stage before the glaze firing. They work on soft clay, leather hard, bone dry or bisqueware. The results will very slightly. To apply the transfers, put the image face down on the clay then dab gently on the back of the tissue paper with a moist sponge or brush then gently peel off the paper. You will get a best results if you rub gently with the back of a spoon but do not rub vigorously or the delicate paper may tear. Before peeling off completely, peel a corner to peek and make sure the image is transferring clearly. The transfers work best on flat surface but can also be applied carefully on curves if cut into small pieces. Once the paper is removed and the image is dry it can then be painted over with slip or underglaze if you wish. A clear or translucent glaze is usually applied over the image at the bisque stage.
Slips & Underglazes
The slips and underglazes are all made and tested at LOAM Clay Studio. The slips are made with the white clay body PSH519 cone 6 stoneware. The slips are suitable for use on cone 6 clay bodies with shrinkage rates of approximately 12% from plastic to fired. The underglazes are suitable for any clay with a firing ranges from cone 06 to 10.
