This is a modified recipe from Val Cushing’s Handbook. I mix many clay-body recipes into casting slips, even if the original recipe is not designated as a casting body. To create a casting slip from this recipe, add a deflocculant such as Darvan 7 or sodium silicate.

This recipe was shared by David Scott Smith in the November/December 2020 issue of Pottery Making Illustrated.
