This is interesting, both the idea of spraying the paperclay slip and the
bleach/smell thing. I use bleach - just a little - in my paperclay and in =
paperclay slip bucket and have never had a smell. The bucket has been =
several months and still no smell. I think I used both regular bleach and
hydrogen peroxide based bleach with no problem. Try some hydrogen peroxide =
in a
batch and see if it helps. I would think that if the slip was not too thick=
you used a large enough nozzle for it to pass through, you could spray it. =
hose that would be placed in the bucket of slip could be cleaned out if it =
clogged up. You would just disconnect it from the spray unit and run water
through it. The spray head is not hard to disassemble (is that the right =
of s's?) and clean out. You have nothing to lose by trying

I'm not using the sandblaster to spray paper clay. I am using a
commercial sprayer.
