Mix all ingredients dry then add to the water (use a ratio of approximately 2/3 dry to 1/3 water). Store the clay as slip and dry out to a plastic consistency as needed. This clay is low plasticity and best for hand- building, but it is easier to work with than Benzle #89. It has a very narrow firing range (cone 6–8).
