Longer: Alberta Slip duplicates the firing properties of Albany Slip and is an excellent base for many types of glazes.
It is a fine grained, medium plastic, dark brown burning clay that melts to form glossy rich deep brown slip glazes at
cone 10 high fire reduction and a glossy transparent brown glaze at cone 6 middle temperature oxidation
(with a 20% borosilicate frit addition e.g. Ferro 3134).
Shorter: Alberta Slip is an Albany Slip substitute. It melts to form a glossy deep brown glaze at cone 10 and a transparent dark brown at cone 6 (with a 20% frit addition).
Alberta Slip is a product of Plainsman Clays and is mined in North America's premier "Clay Country" (near Ravenscrag, Saskatchewan, Canada and also in Montana, USA)
