slip sticking to kiln shelf?

I have never used slips but I have printed out a couple of recipes from the
archives. One is called the C slip from Cynthia Bringle and the other one
is the standard interpretation of "Cynthia Bringle Slip". The latter one
contains silica. Will the silica make the slip stick to my kiln shelf? I
want to put a colored slip on both sides of small windchime pieces so I
cannot have anything that would stick to the shelf. Any information you can
give me would be greatly appreciated. Most of you know the other
ingredients in the slip recipes but if you need the ingredients to tell me
if they will stick I'll be happy to re-post. Thank you in advance. Linda M.
