Hand Pack Addative

Hand Pressed technique is unique in appearance. Hand Pressed can be manipulated to create veins and voids, each piece will be different from the last.

Grouting is required and can have multiple layers of grout in a variety of colours to fill voids and create texture and tone.

Hand Pressed should be a dryer mixer, this mix will not leave moisture on your glove when pressed in hand.

Note: As Hand Pressed is a very individual mix, we recommend one person press a project.
