We are excited to announce a new product launch…..Curtis Texture Paste.

Curtis Texture Paste has been developed by Eddie Curtis in conjunction with his sculpted and hand-built pieces that he made from our ES40 – a premium hand-building clay. He uses a procelain overlay which is a blunged, slip version of Audrey Blackman Porcelain. Both of these he obtains from Valentine Clays Ltd, Stoke-on-Trent, United Kingdom. It is likely that Curtis Texture Paste will work in combination with other clays/slips. Curtis currently uses this combination of pastes and clays in 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.

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.
