Anyone used Continental Clay's Buff Stoneware at cone 6? It's nother 6-10
prepared clay. I'll be doing absorption test after my sample makes it
through the kilns...but would like anyone's comments on their experience.
Primarily would be used for wheel work..in the past I used their mid-Range
oxidation body(cone 4-8) but want to change to lighter colored (not white)
body. Previous body works well otherwise..no controlled drying
used...wondering about that too if anyone's used Buff and had problems
I do remember Jonathan Kaplan's post recently about coming up with your own
mix since most prepared clays are not up to individual's snuff-especially
when touted as covering such a wide range. I imagine a custom mix for my
use will eventually be the aim but for now I am checking with what's readily
available. Maybe someone's used some Minnesota Clay (cone 6)mixes they
might want to share experience.
Feel free to reply directly to avoid the company name game.
