Mixing casting slip

Updated: Nov 10, 2018

I spent the day mixing up casting slip - but first had to ring up Bath Potters for advice. 

Although I had a recipe saved on the computer I had no idea what raw ingredients I had on my shelves.  It's been so long since I mixed a batch that labels on pots have faded making them impossible to read.  I had to ring Bath Potters and describe what my possible ingredients looked like - "I have a clear honey-like substance what could this be?"..."Probably Sodium Silicate".  I got there in the end and re-marked all my ingredients so that the labels will be light-safe.  I've also marked the date on the bucket of slip so that I can see just how many years it does last me for!  Next on the list is some clay recycling...
