  1. Using fibers in casting slip?

    Hi Marciia Thanks a lot for giving me your good suggestions. I will certainly go on with nylonfiber. My concerns are the same as yours, about mixing it correctly. Tomorrow I'll have by mail 1 kg of paperfiber in very fine and small cut. Which I'll try to mix in the wet slip. I guess it will dry out my slip, and make it run slow. Then problems to solve again, but nice. Dit you cast your wings in double casting? The nylonfiber must be chaseable in Denmark as well. Thyge
  2. Using fibers in casting slip?

    The wash bassin is for washroom use. (look www.thygethomasen.dk, menu design). My slip is not fat, and that because of high amount of chamotte and molochite. The slip is ok fluid running. And I'm casting in a double mold of plaster. My problem is that the wash breaks in biscuitfire because of its long shape (75 cm long) and because of its high weight. Therefore I'm then looking for a technique to add fiber to the slip in some amount, enough to make the body less heavy and also stronger through firing. Do You have any experience with adding any kind of materials; could be fiber from paper or a like, to casting slip? Hope you got me right this time
  3. Using fibers in casting slip?

  4. I'm in the middle of changing my slip source for casting sanitary wash; temperature 1240 degr. C., (my source went broke!!) I managed to make a good white slip with a lot of chamotte and molochite; just dry enough to avoid huge shrinkage. Then the slip got slim/dry which makes the shape brake through biscuitefire. I'm then looking for a technique to add fiber to the slip in some amount, enough to make the body less heavy and also stronger for firing. Can anybody help me with their experience?? Thank you!
