Liquid engobes

SKU: N/A Category: Tag:

Liquid engobes are coatings based on clay and coloring materials such as oxides. They are available in various colors, which remain fairly faithful to their raw color. The liquid engobe is ready to use, 'it must be applied when the piece is not completely dry; the engobe must dry together with the ceramic body, because like the glaze, it is the water particles that will allow the engobe to bond well with the surface. Usually, just one application is not enough for the color to be well covered; only after two or three coats does the engobe become opaque. Manual de Iniciação à Cerâmica, Ana João Almeida - we have it available here.

Associated with the application of liquid engobes to the piece, which can be done in a number of ways, the most common being applied with a brush, are the different decorative techniques, such as sgraffito, decal, inlay and others. You can see some practical applications and find inspiration in our Pinterest.
