A method of creating a linear design on a greenware or bisque ceramic body by applying slip (engobes) to the clay by squeezing (extruding) it from a plastic bottle fitted with a small opening in a pointed tip. The slip should be mixed to a consistency approximately like heavy cream (in a proportion of dry ingredients to water that is about 1:2 by volume). Also see brush and sgraffito.
