Super Standard porcelain is a very white kaolin. This clay body (S.W.F.T. or Super White Fairly Translucent) is most plastic and workable when mixed as a slip and dried out on plaster. It shrinks about 18%. I fire on alumina wash rather than kiln wash as it will take on the uneven texture.
To make colored clays, I add 2–8% ceramic stains.
