Here are the recipes for two really nice ocher terra sigillata mixes.  Since Albany Slip is no longer available, you can make the Weiser Ocher one instead which is just as nice!

 

ALBANY SIG

50 grams Albany slip

50 grams KYOM4

400 grams water

10 grams Sodium Hexametaphosphate

 

OCHRE SIG by Weiser

1663 grams Cedar Heights Gold Art

66 grams Yellow Ochre

 

Add to a mixture of:

8 grams soda ash

16 grams Sodium Hexametaphosphate

1 gallon water

Sodium Hexametaphosphate is the original "Calgon" formula plus perfume which was made in the US awhile back. It was reformulated due to the adverse effect the chemical had on the the microscopic flora in streams and rivers but can still be purchased from certain chemical supply houses. I believe it is used by people involved with pool cleaning.
