Shino for Bone Dry Work

Recommended Posts

timbo_heff    37

Anyone have a Shino formula that is known to work well on bone dry wares?

I am hoping to avoid bisque firing but I guess I will if I have to .

I have some of this Gustin shino made up ... (not sure if Chris actually had anything to do with it )

:

Could this maybe be tweaked to work on bone dry with the addition of bentonite ?

Gustin Shino

Nepheline syenite-45%

F-4 Soda feldspar-10.8%

Spodumene-15.2%

OM # 4 ball clay-15.0%

EPK-10.0

Soda ash-4.0%

 

Perhaps bisque fire is the best option no matter what if the wares are already bone dry ?

 

Thanks in advance for any advice on this !

Maybe if you used calcined kaolin for all of the ball clay. Still iffy though. Test.
