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.
