Cone 6 White slip Without Ball Clay?

Recommended Posts

Well, I did not have my glaze calc software with me yesterday and just figured that the ball clay is higher in silica than is EPK so that's why I increased the silica. But now, looking at other recipes, the Alumina/Silica amounts are all over the place with wide variations in ratio so now I'm very confused. Also, the Boron varies a great deal.

 

I just want to mix a batch to use on greenware, fire bisque and then fire cone 5.

Are you considering that you could lose a whole kiln load because of this slip? I am a big fan of trying stuff, but I like the odds to be somewhat in my favor. You might be better off waiting until you feel confident about the slip you are using.

 

Very wise advice from a seasoned professional. I'd take it. wink.gif

I am having a kid's workshop tomorrow and wanted to make a batch. I just took some of my recycled clay body and added frit 3124 and Zircopax. Should be fine. Sometimes I get fixated on a question and don't see what's right in front of me!!

 

Thanks everyone
