Curtis Texture Paste - Iron

CATEGORY: Curtis Texture Paste

What is Curtis Texture Paste? 
A decorative textured ceramic coating developed by ceramic artist Eddie Curtis. Used independently, or in conjunction with an overcoat of porcelain slip, it can be used to give a wide range of organic like textured surfaces.  

The importance of experimentation 
The results achieved with Curtis Texture Paste are almost endless. It strongly encourages experimentation and a ‘let’s see what happens’ approach. The combination of unexpected hues and variations of colour are a very exciting prospect for adventurous, ambitious students of texture! We advise that you practice and experiment with a variety of techniques and tools to achieve desired results. 


Curtis Texture Paste with Iron - Varying shades of cream, tan and brown can be expected.


Firing Range                                                                                                                                                                                                                        Curtis currently uses a 'flame fired' kiln and fires the works in a reduction atmosphere to stoneware temperatures of around 1300°c. Oxidised electric firings will of course present a new set of parameters for development and experimentation.
