Resist Techniques on Clay

  1. 1. Resists on Clay Ceramics (applicable to all levels) C.L. Colby New Smyrna Beach High School
  2. 2. Review: function of a resist • • From our Experience Clay textbook: “Paint a design with liquid wax (or other resist) on leather hard clay. When the wax is dry, paint over the design with an under glaze. The waxed area will remain clear while the unwaxed area will hold color.”
  3. 3. Review: resist on bisque ware • From our Experience Clay textbook: • “Apply wax directly on bisqueware. When this is done, the wax application will resist any glaze that is applied. The wax melts away during firing, leaving raw fired clay as a contrast to the glazed area.”
  4. 4. Examples of Resists that can be used on clay • Masking Tape (mask) • White Glue • Latex • Liquid Wax • Crayon
  5. 5. When can I use a resist? • On greenware (before any firings, with under glaze) • On bisque ware (with under glaze or glaze)
  6. 6. Example on a smooth tile with some sgraffito and carving • Tape
  7. 7. Stamped Tile with Resists
  8. 8. After Firing Comparison

  11. 11. Example of the resist process • 1. Underglaze area light green. • 2. Sketch out bamboo design. • 3. Apply resist over bamboo shapes. • 4. Let dry • 5. Apply glaze over vessel.
  12. 12. Next Steps • As you continue to construct your slab box, brainstorm a way to incorporate a resist technique into your box design. • After we discuss our design ideas, we will practice applying resists on scrap clay.
  13. 13. Resist Design Options • Use the resist in the background (or negative space) around your stamp. • Use the resist to create a pattern on smooth slabs on your box. • Use the resist to help create a focal point on your box.
  14. 14. Assessment • Adding a resist technique to your sketch will count as your Formative Assessment. • The result of your resist design will be part of your Slab Box Summative Assessment.
