terra sig settling like glue

I'm having a great time with my experiments with terra sig. Made 2 batches:
white with Thomas Ball clay and red with redart. The white t.s. has
settled out like elmers glue. What do I use to flocculate? DO I flocculate
ts? Maybe I used too much sodium silicate? I sort of hate digging it out of
the bottom with my fingernails.

Thanks for advice,
