quantity :

This guide is dedicated to slip coatings fired at low temperature. Ochres and mineral colours, used since Prehistoric times, are the only pigments presented in this booklet, and help break with the uniformity of artificial colours or standardized oxides. Discover in this book a whole range of methods from Neolithic times and try them out for yourself. There is also an address book to help you find ochre and the different ingredients.
