Latex Resist

Liquid latex is used to create patterns on ceramics. The latex is painted onto unfired ceramic ware to keep those pattern areas from being covered in slip or glaze. Once the piece is painted with slip or glaze, the latex is peeled off, revealing the unfired clay beneath it, and the piece is fired.
