I use this slip to fill the voids of the crackle slip that I also use and provide contrast. Pots are saturated in slip and wiped clean, leaving slip in the recessed areas. While the recipe belongs entirely to Mary Barringer, I call it Crackle Spackle. It works well at cone 6 and has been successfully fired to cone 12 in various wood kilns.
