Slip casting mixing with stain

Recommended Posts

Hi all :)

I have a problem about mixing the slip with stain. Please give me suggestions. I usually use the mixer to blend the dry porcelain clay with water, after I add the some stain with sieves into the slip. No matter how long I stir, there is a very light white colour on the top, like a fog when fired.  Now I use a spoon to take it out, but not really help much, cause it will appear more n more every time. Is it normal? any suggestion for me?

And by the way, where can I buy the tools for measuring the thickness for slip online?

Many thanks!

Hi Kaley, and welcome to the forum.

several questions to help narrow down the list of "possibles" 

1. Are you using a premix: if so name please?

2. Are you mixing your own recipe, if so what body flux are you using?

3. Pics of this film perhaps?

4. Whose stain are you using: and color #?

5. Have you mixed this slip before without stain? If so, did you notice a film?
