using a slip under terra sig

I ran a search on this, but did not find anything

I have a nice vessel my husband made a little while
ago. He put a black slip on it while it was leather
hard. Now that it is bone dry (still has not been
bisqued yet), can I still use a terra sig on top of
that? When my husband made this piece, I had no idea
about terra sig and pit firing yet.

Is it possible to do this, or has anyone tried before.
I want to do a pit firing before fall is over, and it
would be nice to put this piece in with it all.

Thanks for any help
