To create this slip, use as much laterite as needed to make an appropriate-sized batch and add enough water to create a thin slip. Apply this to bisqueware via dipping, pouring, spraying, or brushing. Works best in wood firings.
This slip is fired in a train-style
wood kiln using mixed hardwoods. Firing duration
and temperature: 27-hour firing to cone 10–11,
cooled in reduction for roughly 6 hours (stoking
4 small to medium sticks of side-stoke wood in the primary air and side-stoke ports about every 15 minutes until the temperature reached 1500°F (816°C) in the front of the kiln and 1600°F (871°C) in the back of the kiln).
