I am just starting into the world of slip casting after throwing for a few years. I have routinely used b-mix stoneware that I fire to cone 5/6. I am trying to figure out if a stoneware slip or a porcelain slip will be the most durable. I’m still firing to cone6. I am making many many plates for a high-end caterer, so I just need them to be strong, but I figure slip cast will help with uniformity over throwing. Suggestions?
So any tips for preventing warping on a cone 4 ( yes I mean 4 not 04 :D ) vitreous slip cast clay? It's a tall tiki form that is a little top heavy so they wants to sag/warp. I'm applying amaco velvet underglaze to the exterior that develops a slight sheen so I don't want to lay them on their side... Also has anyone tried firing amaco celedons at cone 4? I've been experimenting with some recipes but they are coming out more opaque and milky. Kinda in a crunch!
