In Topic: Can I Use This ^10 Slip As A ^5 Slip?

ok ive used  porcelain slip (high fire)  on non porcelain bodies @ cone 6 no issues in fit..... (but the clay gods have been lenient with me)


thing is i think since you are adding it to "wetish".... you get forgiveness factor....   the kohiki finish is a bit "dry" so i think you will get away with same recipe.


i think you'll get a closer cone 5 recipe subbing nephsy  for the custer


i did make a few  kohiki test tiles with unknown studio white clay slip  over standard 266  with promising results but never revisited....


warning the above statements have no science behind other than some empirical results....


i'd me more concerned with getting a well behaved cone 5 clay that is dark enough......


it is possible to re slip/wash over with darker slip/wash  then wipe back to white.......

you're not going to like my answer........




could be as simple as   weigh out both, weigh grog,    wedge then mess out of it..    let rest  then wedge the mess out of it again ,     then run some test bars.....


might as well run some  test extruded cylinders  while your at it.......
