Alberta Slip (44# bag) Albany Slip substitute

Alberta Slip is a medium plasticity clay-like material. It can be mixed with water to produce a body that can be modeled or thrown on a potter's wheel and fired at low temperatures.


Like classic Albany Slip, Alberta Slip melts fairly well from cone 6 up. By cone 10 it produces a glossy brown in oxidation and a tenmoku in reduction.


Since it is basically a clay material, it generates a significant amount of gases as it decomposes during melting. These tend to make it an 'active' melter in that it bubbles and heaves as it melts (if applied in a very thick layer). For a better melt, add a boron frit (i.e. Ferro 3134) and fire slow enough to give it time to smooth out.

Due to fluctuating prices in the raw materials market, any price increases will be confirmed with you before your order is charged or shipped.
