KyMudworks – Cone 5-7 Dark Star - 50lb Box
Introducing Dark Star! If you like speckles in your clay but are looking for a body that keeps your glazes brighter, check out this new clay body. Based off of our very popular Ice Man clay body, Dark Star is easy to throw and handbuild with and is very forgiving, smooth, and plastic.
Matures cone 5-6. Can be pushed to cone 7 slow fired.
Shrinkage 11.5% Absorption at ^6 1.7%
WE ALWAYS, ALWAYS RECOMMEND SLOW FIRING SPEEDS IN BOTH BISQUE AND GLAZE WHEN USING ANY CLAY BODY THAT CONTAINS MANGANESE SPECKS DUE TO OFF GASSING. This allows the gasses time to escape properly from the ware.
