In this clip, an excerpt from his DVD Expanding Your Creative Palette with Colored Clay, Curt Benzle gives tips on making colored clays from scratch. Glaze isn't the only tool for adding color to your ceramic work. Mixing the color right into the clay is a really cool alternative. 

I have to admit, I haven't dabbled much in this technique because it seemed like an such an effort to make the colored clay. But, as Curt explains, it is really not that bad, especially if you set yourself up with a segmented plaster drying bat. Easy Peasy! - Jennifer Poellot Harnetty, editor
