B-Mix 10 (WC-379)
This premiere, cream-white throwing clay is easy to throw and form. It has a smooth porcelain texture, but you will most likely find it a bit easier to control than typical porcelain bodies. The reason for that is B-Mix contains a stoneware fraction, which imparts certain technical advantages in fabrication. Whereas porcelain alone can be particularly sensitive to variations in moisture or not weather certain alterations well, the stoneware fraction in this claybody cuts down on loss due to production issues.
Overall, this is a very popular clay body that fires grey/white in reduction and a bit lighter in oxidation. This listing is for the Cone 10 version, but we also carry a Cone 5 version called B-Mix 5.
