Laguna B-3

29 September 2012 - 01:05 PM

Hi Everyone,

I had the pleasure of seeing some pieces thrown with Laguna' B-3 clay. It's almost black at ^6 and has a wonderful raw natural look to it unglazed.
My question is has anyone here had experience with it? The fact that it contains Manganese is a little bit of a concern for me. It'll be used for purely
decorative pieces but the handling of it may require extra safety measures.
The MSDS sheet seems to gloss over the 6% Manganese issue.
I'd also be interested in how this clay holds glazes. There seem to be some mixed reviews but the sources are vague.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Peter
