10 lbs. Amy's Magic Decorating Slip (Dry Material)
Description: This Porcelain Slip is formulated to go from super-thick to thin. This is not Coleman Porcelain. This is a formulation by Amy Kline that is made to be applied much thicker without cracking. Works in reduction and oxidation.
Important Info: Magic Slip bonds the best with Coleman Porcelain because there is no Ball Clay in the formula. If the porcelain you're using has ball clay in it - it's not porcelain. The ball clay will cause it to shrink away from the Magic Slip. Anything with ball clay is cheap and crazes with celadons. Ask your supplier if the porcelain your using has ball clay in it.
Mixing: To mix it super-thick I barely add enough water to make it like super-thick mud. I then force it through a 60 mesh bowl screen 2 times with my hand to scoop it and push it through. If you want the slip thinner for spraying add more water.
To apply Black Magic Slip over your Magic Slip: Wait until your work is boney dry. Prepare the Black Magic Slip by adding water and screen 2 times thru an 80 mesh screen. 48-50 on a hydrometer. Black Magic Slip can be dipped or sprayed.
Bisque Fire on: (we bisque porcelain to cone 08). Then, dip or spray glazes.
Firing: cone 6-10 in oxidation orreduction.
Important Note: Remember to run a few tests before applying any unfamiliar slip orglaze to lots of work. Take notes. Find the correct application for your work with the way your kiln is being fired.
