What would happen if I soaked yarn in slip, applied the yarn in a pattern and then fired and glazed the piece? I'd wish I never started the process. I had a miserable time getting the slip soaked string attached. Then, the bisqued piece was so delicate where the string was that pieces kept crumbling off.
Result: I now use a coil when I want this effect. All part of the process of creating and learning.
I wanted to make a sculpture with coils applied to the outside. Alas, when I got to the bottom, I slipped where I should have scored and slipped. When it was bisqued, I should have just removed the bottom coils. Now, they are forever glazed in that position.
