Here is the Cone 10 Porcelain Casting Slip we used in

55 lbs. Grolleg (English China Clay)
20 lbs. Custer Feldspar
13 lbs. Pyrophyllite (Pyrotrol)
12 lbs. Flint

40 pints/lbs. Hot water
275 ml Darvan #7

Weigh H20 into large barrel
Pour in 1/2 Darvan #7
Sprinkle in materials while mixing

Let slip "rest" overnight
remix and adjust for viscosity
adjust by adding either more darvan or more H20

***Just a note*** We mixed this in a 55 gallon barrel
(on wheels) and the stuff feels like silk. You
probably will want to take a bath in it ;')
It worked great in cone 10 reduction.

Hey out there,

Does anyone explore and possibly have a recipe they
can share for a
cone 10
porcelain casting slip. I can't seem to find anything
on the subject.
