Well, that didn’t take long at all, did it?
Before I go rambling off about all that I’ve been up to since August, I should probably share my other slip recipe, as promised. Directions for mixing are the same as the previous recipe – add the materials in the order written, blunging well in between each:
Cone 6 Porcelain Slip from Dylan Beck
Water 2 gallons
Darvan 7 68 grams
OM4 Ball Clay 10 lbs
EPK 5 lbs
Grolleg 5 lbs
G200 Feldspar 5 lbs
Nepheline Syenite 5 lbs
Silica 7.5 lbs
This slip isn’t as white or translucent as the previous recipe when thin, but it was very easy to work with, and I used it for all of my thesis work in grad school. Definitely a less costly option!
