Spattering is to shake substances like slips, glaze-bases and glaze colors onto your work, leaving an uneven spotted texture. They can be spattered onto clay or bisque surfaces and also onto those already prepared with slip, glaze-base or a glaze-color. Different instruments are useful to create the texture; electric sprays, mouth sprays, toothbrushes, etc. To prepare big uneven surfaces, a brush made up of palm leaves is very good. Spattering can be combined with other methods and gives textures to large spaces of one color. Read more about: Glaze-Base Tectures
