I am in search of a translucent clay body. It is my understanding that porcelain is the best (only) clay to achieve this. I am making luminaries with hard slabs. I was considering using Grolleg Kaolin and am researching Frost as an alternative. My main concern is a clay that lends itself to hard slab techniques. I'm also interested in firing at cone 10 or lower, preferably cone 6. Would firing a high fire porcelain at cone 6 affect the translucency, make it less translucent if fired lower than cone 10?
Hi all Have just flipped through the last 20 forum pages (eyes hurt!) looking for a PDF paper some very clever soul once posted last year on making your own ceramic tape sheets of porcelain, a 'homemade' version of Keraflex sheets......of course cannot find it! Have used the Search option with several combinations of words but still no luck! The primary binder was PVA glue that gave the thin translucent porcelain its plastic flexibility but with a bit of water would soften the glue base allowing complex shapes to be formed from the sheets. Much, much cheaper than buying Keraflex no matter how wonderful it is. There was a very specific way of making the slip formula and handling the sheets in drying so am looking for that PDF.....does anyone remember the post?....have the PDF on file?...have another recipie I could use? Help ........! Irene
