Mishima has been practiced around the world for hundreds (if not thousands) of years. This decorative technique involves incising a design, then filling it in with a contrasting slip.
Sgraffito is another pottery decorating technique dating back thousands of years. In it, contrasting colors of slip are layered upon a clay pot or object. Once leather-hard, the slip is incised down into the underlying clay body, giving both a color and textural change.
