Shino for Bone Dry Work
Posted 04 December 2012 - 02:01 PM
I am hoping to avoid bisque firing but I guess I will if I have to .
I have some of this Gustin shino made up ... (not sure if Chris actually had anything to do with it )
Could this maybe be tweaked to work on bone dry with the addition of bentonite ?
F-4 Soda feldspar-10.8%
OM # 4 ball clay-15.0%
Perhaps bisque fire is the best option no matter what if the wares are already bone dry ?
Thanks in advance for any advice on this !

Maybe if you used calcined kaolin for all of the ball clay. Still iffy though. Test.
