Georgies Liquid Slip

 

More Clays: LowfireMidrangeDrySlip

Georgies offers a full line of liquid slip clays to suit the needs of dollmakers, hobby casters, and production studios. We also carry a full selection of slip additives, those crucial chemical mix-ins that make the slip work. You'll find those on this page, too, plus a one-page guide on how to mix and use casting slip in molds.

 

White-Cast Liquid Slip (CL130: gallon jugs)

Georgies' White Cast Slip has proven itself over time because of its white fired body, ease of deflocculation and economical price. Your molds will produce good detail with a moderate setting time with White Cast.

One-gallon jugs of slip can be shipped in singles by UPS, or in cases of 4. Each gallon weighs about 15 pounds.

Boxes of 2-1/2 gallons can be shipped on pallets by freight, but cannot be shipped UPS. Each box weighs about 35 pounds.

Slip Additives

These components are the thinning and suspension agents that hold the clay particles in the liquid base, so they don't all sink to the bottom. When mixing your slip, over-thinning (aka overdeflocculation) is a major concern. If you use too much of these ingredients, your greenware may be grainy, fragile, and difficult to handle or work with. Over-thinning errors often can't be corrected -- meaning your entire batch of slip, and the money you spent on the raw materials, all goes to waste.

Use SODIUM SILICATE sparingly: do not add it all at once! Add it only as needed for your slip to perform according to the tests below, in our Slip Usage Guide. If you reach the maximum amount of sodium silicate for your batch size and the slip still does not flow at the desired rate, you can add DARVAN at up to 1 liquid ounce per 100 dry pounds of slip mix. Remember: you can always add more, but you can't take it back out!

CH304
Barium Carbonate
Toxic in its powder form. You don't have to use it in mixing your own slip, but it may be useful because it neutralizes sulfates that may be present in the clay or leached from molds.

Darvan
Darvan is a dispersal agent, effectively used as a deflocculant in liquid clays and glazes. It helps hold solid particles in suspension in the liquid base.

CH357
Soda Ash (Sodium Carbonate)
Acts as a deflocculant in reducing the water of plasticity in slip bodies. Increases workability and strength and reduces shrinkage.

CH359
Sodium Silicate
Sodium silicate is used as a major deflocculant in preparing liquid slip. It can also be used as an adhesive (ie, for securing insulation to the side of a raku kiln). Also known as "Waterglass."
