Alberta/ Albany Slip

Recommended Posts

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.

Any favorite ( or marginally like able). Albany/alberta based glaze recipes?



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.

I use this one at cone 6 all the time. I use it with no colorant layered with 2 or 3 other glazes but I have used the brown in the past.
