Albany & Barnard Blackbird Slips

Recommended Posts

I inherited a small amount of Albany slip and Barnard Blackbird slip in powder form - about 2 cups of each. I am working with stoneware and firing at cone 6 in an electric kiln. As I am new at this, are there easy recipes for these two slips anyone cares to share? These slips are best applied to wet, leatherhard or bisque ware?

Cedar Heights Redart is mined by the Resco Corp. it is a red earthenware clay.

#3134 is a frit manufactured by the Ferro Corp.

If you do a search on almost any ceramic supplier's website, you'll find more information about these products.

Does this help?
