5 lbs. Black Magic Slip
Description: (Bonds with different types of clay bodies). This layer of Black Magic Slip on your clay body creates an entirely new pallet of color when you put your glazes over the top of it. We call it "magic" because (depending on your glaze) the edges will show as black, blue or deep green. These images show different, cone 10 reduction glazes, over Black Magic Slip. 1)Tiki Turquoise, 2)Sunset Red, 3)Ruby Red, 4)Multi-White, 5)Concord 6)Grape, 7)Sperry Crack, 8)Diamond Black, 9)Ash Glaze.
Mixing: One order equals 5 lbs of dry material. Makes approx. 1 gallon of liquid slip. Add water and screen 2 times thru an 80 mesh screen. 50-52 on a hydrometer. If it cracks a bit upon dipping and drying- add a bit more water.
Application: Works well for decorative brush work, sgraffito, inlay, dipping or spraying. Apply when the clay is wet, leather, or bone dry. We dip and spray Black Magic Slip when it's bone dry. We also sponge down our porcelain when it's bone dry to put a fresh, closed skin back into the surface..
Bisque fire the slip onto your work: (we bisque porcelain to cone 08. then dip or spray with a cone 10 reduction glaze.
Firing: Cone 10 reduction.
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.
