Thanks Marcia, I wonder if you could tell me how much dry mix you add to your mixer to make up 25 lbs of moist clay? That information along with what you've already told me should have me set. Thanks so much for your help.
I know the ratio of dry nylon fibers to dry clay, but never having mixed dry clay, I don't know what proportion to add to my moist cone 6 translucent "porcelain." I am hand building extremely thin ware which must drape over a tall plaster form, and ordinarily it takes six or so trys before I can get one that doesn't rip off the form. I would greatly appreciate any help I could get from anyone who has used these Dupont nylon fibers. I purchased them from a ceramic supply store. Thanks.
