Ceramic Slip Casting Compound
Can Be Used to Make Decorative Ceramics & Utility Items such as Dinnerware
Ceramic Slip is a liquid clay compound that is fire hardened, not air-cured. Designed to be used with plaster ceramic molds to produce greenware (The fragile clay body before it has been fired to Bisque). The plaster absorbs the water from the slip forming a clay shell.
Ceramic Slip should be poured approximately at the consistency of cream. Stir the mixture to ensure that it is blended evenly, being careful not to beat in air. Pour slowly to avoid air bubbles. Keep the reservoir area filled above the beginning of the piece to ensure an even thickness. Depending on the size of your mold, you can generally empty the mold after only 5-30 minutes. Let the mold drain upside down for another 15 to 60 minutes (depending on the shap and size of the item) and you're ready to trim your reservoir area and remove your casting from the mold.
