We finally got our claymixer up and running. The only
problem is we do not have a recipe for a good cone six clay body. Up until
now we have been using boxed clay, and now we need to replace it with a
reliable throwing body. I know I can get a thousand recipes from books but
inet something reliable and I do not have time to test right now. If anybody
is willing to part with the recipe to a light brown cone six good throwing
body, I would be very grateful. Please I am only looking for reliable
recipes. Thanks to everyone n advance.

For simplicity sake, have you tried htis little test?
1. Your favorite cone ten recipe,
2. same with soda spar in place of potash spar
3. same with half soda half neph sy instead of potash spar
4. same with all neph sy instead of potash spar
Make a couple pounds of each and you'll have enough to do glaze tests and

Excuse me but you caught me with my pants down. Are you responding to
me in reference to a post that I put up quite a while ago? I f yes thank you
for responding but I am not quite sure what you are telling me to do. But at
any rate I did solve the problem by calling Standard and ordering dry mix of
the boxed clay I normally use. Thank you

When you mention getting caught with your pants down, are you the model
