I've been using this all-purpose slip recipe for years. It's stable and fits any clay body I have ever put it on. It looks beautiful low fired and at mid range. It also works in high-fired applications, and responds well to wood firing. It accepts colorants beautifully, and, when thinned-out, pours lovely as a liner or for exterior coverage. I add a little Epsom salts (magnesium sulfate) if it gets too thin.
