I'm hoping someone knows of a commercial version or a recipe for a darker grey (not brown or buff) groggy throwing clay-body. Ideally cone 6 but cone 10 would work too. Any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
Paul

i assume you have checked all the clay suppliers online catalogs for grey or black clays. if you haven't, start there.

I've checked all that I know of. Looks like using stains is the way to go.
