depends on the recipe your using, it may or may not need added flux

Test a small 100 gm recipe

I have used a few bags a year of alberta slip  (still have a few bags of albany left) over many years now

I have found that its about the same in some applications and not the same in others. It as Wyndam says may need flux as true abany fluxes at a cooler temps I think. In my black glaze which only has three ingredients (which I posted here last year Nep sye and cobalt ox and alberta) its a direct albany pound for pound deal

In other glazes more flux may be needed especially at cone 6. Albany alone melts very well at cone 8-9

I have not run tests on Alberta alone lately-maybe years ago but I have no recall of the results.

In Daniel Rhodes book there is a section on slip glazes.

With some of the info above, one of these glaze people may be able to formulate it for you, or work around with the Frit suggested.

Here's a synthetic Albany recipe. I haven't used it in years, but if I remember right it was decent. Test, of course.
