  1. Can work with two different kinds of clays with different porosity together when marbling or doing other clay combinations? For example one terracotta which ends up very porous and one stoneware clay that vitrifies to be less porous? Or will it crack?
  2. Hello all! I’ve been wanting to play with mason stains to color my cone 6 porcelain (slip casting) clay body. I eventually want to get a feel for the whole spectrum of colors and my goal is to use combinations of different stains to get unique colors. I know that you can find out which stains are tried and true on Mason Stain’s reference guide for clay bodies but I’m curious as to what stains you all would recommend to go with for starters! I’m also wondering if you guys have played with any stains that aren’t recommended for body stains but still worked and didn’t burn out.
  3. I am making some drinking mugs for a Renaissance Faire. I am using Kentucky Mudworks Brown Bear clay body, one I have just started using recently (I LOVE the beautiful chocolate brown color after firing). I threw the mugs and then attached a shield-shaped slab piece on the front, and am etching out the name of our Ren Fest on the front. I love the idea of leaving the shield unglazed and just glazing the rest of the mug around it, but I'm afraid the etched out words/image will not be very legible since the clay is so dark. I tried to find pictures of similar things on the internet and couldn't
  4. Cheers! I thank you very much if anyone can consult. I don't know why in the black or red ceramic paste (which I have high temperature), my faldespatico base enamels do not cover this clay. The enamels come out with bubbles.., although in white clay they work well for me. I understand that black clays contain ox iron and manganese..
  5. Is there a learning curve with new clays? I just bought two new clays and at this point it seems that my skill level has deteriorated. Is there a solution so I'm not recycling so much clay? Maybe wedging more or something? TIA -Rippity
  6. Hi all, Second time posting here and I’m hoping you can help! Hopefully this is the right place to be for a troubleshooting question like this. Im currently working from a recipe for Val Cushing’s Cone 6 Porcelain Slip. grolleg: 15% tile 6: 15% Epk: 3% om4: 10% flint: 25% neph sy: 30% gerstley borate: 2% —————————— Sodium silicate: .0028% calgon: .0005% When I mixed this before, as now, I subbed the deflocculants with Darvan. I mixed it successfully then, but I’m currently have difficulty. I know that darvan generally subs
  7. I have a clay body that I absolutely love and has become vital to the work that I am focusing on at the moment. Unfortunately I am no longer working out of a facility where I can mix this clay myself. Is there a company that exists where you can send in a clay body recipe and have it made for you? I know there is something like that for glazes.
