5 lbs. Black Onyx Slip Cone 6-10
Description: This Black Onyx Slip is created specifically for firing in an oxidation (electric) kiln. Goes Black in Oxidation. Firing range is from cone 6 - 10. This test tile shown was glazed with Turquoise Crystal Glaze cone 10 Oxidation and then fired to cone 10 in an electric kiln. If you're purchasing this Black Onyx Slip to go underneath the Cone 7-8 version of the Crystal Oxidation Glazes we don't know if it will still produce crystals. It would be a test.
Mixing: One order equals 5 lbs of dry material. Add water and screen twice thru an 80 mesh screen. Makes approx. 1 gallon of liquid slip. 50-52 on the hydrometer.
Application: This Black Ox Slip can be brushed, dipped or sprayed. Apply on greenware and bisque fire on to at least cone 08. Then, dip or spray on glazes and fire to glaze temperature. Can be used for all of the traditional uses one uses slip for.
Image Info: Black Onyx Slip is shown on this test tile under the Mint Crystal Glaze Oxidation Cone 10 version offered on this site.
Note 1: This slip works well under most cone 10 oxidation and reduction glazes.
Note 2: 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.
