Slip casting How thick?
Posted 07 October 2012 - 10:15 PM
Also what is the best cone 10 clay to use for slip, or does someone have a formula they wouldn't mind sharing, for casting? I am looking for something with very little sand, but is cost effective. I have been using Soldate 60 because I have a huge supply of it, but I am not really happy with the roughness of the soldate 60 slip.
Thanks in advance

Figure on 1 1/2"- 2" thick all around,
-Not so thick that it takes a long time for the mold to dry after you release the casting.
-And not so thin that the mold will saturate with water.

Thanks for the advice. I have made a total of 5 molds so far and have found that 2" seems to work the best.
