Mixing porcelain clays Results of mixing clay bodies?

Has anybody tried this before?
What happens after a bisque fire?
Which temperature do you follow for the bisque & glaze fire - the porcelain body or the stoneware?
When it comes to glazing, can I use an earthenware premixed glaze on this mixed body?
Will it be food safe if I leave it unglazed?
Thanks for any advice most welcome! I haven't a clue.

Foods safe for unglazed will depend on firing to maturity and surface and what is in the clay bodies . . . something that is rough and pitted, or carved, will offer hiding places for bacteria to grow and fester. You can always put a napkin or other item between food and surface. Restrict yourself to non-liquids, etc. Foods may stain the surface.
