How to make porcelain paper clay

Recommended Posts

Hello, 

I am trying to build ceramic baskets using extremely fine coils of porcelain, and wanted to try making porcelain paper clay so that I can work as fine as I would like to. I am wondering where I can find the best recipe to make it, and what paper pulp I should use. Would it also be beneficial for me to add porcelain grog/molochite to the mix? 

Many thanks!

Jerry Bennett workshop handout for making paper clay here, it covers pretty much everything for making paper clay. For the pulp I know a lot of potters use cotton linter rather than  paper cellulose. I would be inclined to try it without molochite first.
