Terri98 Posted October 31, 2022 Report Share Posted October 31, 2022 I work with a stoneware body for Raku. I use a cone 10 body and sometimes a cone 5 body. I add kyanite and grog. Generally, I am hand building as opposed to slab building. I like what I read about paper clay. I see people dipping, pouring. slab building but not sure if it fits my approach. I also like to use texture, and sometimes fine detail. I like that paper adds strength. What about plasticity? I like that it can be used to patch cracks and possibly help mend breaks even on bisque ware. Really? If I had a paper clay made from the same clay I raku with would it be possible to use that on green ware cracks prior to firing? After first firing? That alone would make it very interesting. If both clay bodies share a parent body could I mix the two? Knead them together? Is there a paper clay designed for raku? I was reading some of the articles with Jerry Bennett, he mentioned a fiber that is sometimes used with Raku, can not quiet remember what he called it. I looked it up online might be in the hemp family. Not sure. Very intrigued just not sure how to approach it. I can see how it would be beneficial for wall pieces. Less weight. I would appreciate feedback and insight on what might be possible. Thanks Terri Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
