  1. It's easy when you design the piece you are making to complement the patterning you are using. I do cheat a little because I design my own line of texture mats geared towards ceramic applications! You can find them on my Etsy site - https://www.etsy.com/shop/BHClaysmith?section_id=13035613&ref=shopsection_leftnav_7
  2. 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.
  3. 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
