Curtis Texture Paste - Neutral

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 Neutral is the base product to which other pre-coloured texture pastes can be added to give a wide range of tonal results depending on the ratio of the mix. The coloured pastes are very strongly coloured and not designed for stand-alone use, but as admixes to the neutral paste. Due to the variety of kilns, firing schedules and kiln atmospheres, there are a number of possible colour outcomes for each paste. 

Containing no additional colouring oxides, this paste can successfully be used to create textures in a neutral tone. 


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.
