welcome to the forum.  you want to buy casting slip sold by ceramic suppliers all over.    if you give us your location, someone might know what supplier is nearest you.  shipping charges are high as slip weighs a lot so getting it locally will save you money.

Thanks Im in Northampton

Northampton, England?


A quick Google found the following, in Stoke-on-Trent: Potclays, Potterycrafts, Valentine Clays.   Didn't find any in Northampton.

Also, try contacting your local potters guild, they may have a clay dump/be able to offer discounts.
