Slip casting is an efficient way to make interesting irregular ceramic forms and is a great way to mass produce ceramic pieces. Use casting slip with plaster molds for a wide variety of items, shapes and sizes. Although we do not carry slip-casting molds, we are stocked up mold making supplies, so you can create molds and ceramics that are entirely your own. The sky is the limit to the pieces you can make using casting slip.
Note: 1 gallon and 5 gallon containers have premixed slip, ready for you to use (although minor adjustments may be necessary). 50# bags of dry slip requires mixing with water and deflocculants such as soda ash, sodium silicate or dispersal/Darvan to get proper results. Mixing formulas vary. See Laguna's web site for mixing information.
