Terra Sigillata 

#Don't fire your Terra Sigillate/burnished pot over 950C/1720F; otherwise, it will diminish the shine.

Clay Slip + deflocculates or sodium silicate (allow fine Particles to float freely)

  1. Transparent plastic jar/glass
  2. Mix 2 kg water/2 liter + 1 kg Clay + 25g deflocculate
  3. Let it sit for 24 hours
  4. The lighter particles rise to the top
  5. The heavy particles sink at the bottom
  6. Only use the middle-level slip for Terra Sigillate
  7. Slightly spray with water (recommend) before brushing on a bone dry surface with 1-3 coat all at once
  8. Smooth the surface with soft cloth/plastic bag sheet (the white thin one work better)
  9. Bisque firing to cone 018 before pit firing..etc.
