  1. I usually buy regular porcelain slip from my ceramic supplier but they only had English Porcelain Slip in stock when i went last time. Are there any differences other than the color? I know that English Porcelain comes out more white. I heard from somewhere that English Porcelain has a tendency to warp more and that it requires thinner walls but I can't find any information online to confirm that. Does anyone know if there are any differences that I should know about? Thanks in advance!
  2. @LeeUrecently posted: I read something on one of the threads about formulating an oil/wax/clay material to use for making forms for slipcasting. I'd like to see some discussion regarding the slipcasting that Forum members do/have done. Process & product, w/a few pics, ideally! I usually make have some sort of personal reference for these questions, but alas not much here. My only experience with slip casting is that my parents did some casting and glazing at the local rec centers on bases. They enjoyed doing it for many years, and then on one move no longer had access to the craft. QotW:What sort of forms do you use when doing slipcasting? best, Pres
  3. Hi, what can be causing these lines in the slip casted piece? I bought the slip already mixed, but it wasn't newly made so it was rather thick. Measured the specific gravity to 1.82 and have been adding water to make it more fluid. Made some bowls in an open one piece mold and sometimes these lines showed, sometimes not. They were always on the outside, against the mold. Now I'm trying a two piece mold and added more water because I had trouble filling the whole mold. And now these lines are more accentuated. Anyone knows what they are called and why I get them?
  4. Hi. Have just joined this forum hoping for some advice from experts. I'm a product designer and am currently undergoing a project that requires some complex ceramic pieces. I am hoping to get the ceramic pieces slipcast but I'm not even sure if it's possible? I have attached some rough renders of the design and some drawings. I plant to have the pieces produced from teracotta and stoneware slip. What do you think? Would it be possible to easily produce around 500 units of these or is it a lost cause? Any advise or just your thoughts would be greatly appreciated!
  5. Hello everyone, this is my first time on the forum, so glad I found you all. I wonder if anyone can help me with my slipcasting problem? I have made a narrow (4cm) and tall (26cm) cylinder mould and although the first cast came out satisfactory, the next three have came out the mould with the bases ‘sucked’ in/imploded. Could it be that the opening to the mould is too narrow to drain the slip? Or could my slip be too thick? When I cut into the cast it was still filled with slip about a quarter of the way up the form. If my slip is too thick, could I add a little water to thin it down? Many thanks in advance for your advice. Laura
