John Wheeldon - March 2017
A great day with John. Photos below. Here is the information about the joining slip/paste.
Dry Clay Body (the one you are using for the work) 1000gms
Gum Arabic 20gms
Mix the dry ingredients together to disperse the Bentonite. Measure out 500ccs of water and add 5cc of Dispex. Slowly add the dry mix to the water, whilst stirring, until a pouring slip consistency is reached. You may not require the full amount of dry mix. When ready for use, the defloculated slip MUST be re-floculated by adding small quantities of Magnesium Sulphate (Epsom Salts) in solution. This action of first defloculation andthen re-floculation is important and should not be omitted.
