Slipcasting information Where can I fin it?

I usually buy slip when I need it. I never make it. However you can 'Google' 'Paul Wandless slip making'. He has a method of making your moist clay into casting slip. You may get the same info here on CAD; try a search.

Try doing a library or Google search on 'mold making for ceramics' and there you will find slipcasting information.

It begins with a dry powder clay recipe plus diffloculent additives and proper blending of 10 minutes three times /day for 10 days. I used this process and it was very successful . I was able to make slip for particular clay bodies.
