Slipping the clutch also refer to as Feathering of clutch is term used by automotive enthusiasts to explain when the driver should alternately apply and release the clutch to achieve some movement of the car. It's so called because the clutch plate slips against the surface of flywheel when such an action takes place. The Feathering of clutch comes out to be hard on the clutch surface due to the sliding friction created.
