Spodumene (substitute) is a silicate mineral often referred to as lithium feldspar. Commonly used in ceramics as a source of lithia which is used as a powerful flux especially when used with potash and soda feldspars.
C$74.00
Silica (Flint) 400 Mesh is a purified version of this much used material of glaze and claybody formulation. In clay and glazes, Flint provides the melting, or glassifying agents in a claybody that allow the material to fuse together.
C$11.75
Feldspar Potash (Custer) is one of the primary feldspars used in ceramics. G200 EU is a 1:1 substitute for G200 in glaze recipes.
C$7.90
Minspar 200 is a 200 mesh soda feldspar from Spruce Pine, NC. It is composed of crystalline minerals made up of mainly of alkaline silicates. Minspar 200 is used extensively in ceramics in both clay and glaze formulation.
C$7.50
Nepheline Syenite has been a used in the ceramic industry for many years, and is known for the whiteness it imparts to clay bodies and increasing low to mid cone glaze firing ranges.
C$9.25
Wollastonite is a natural calcium silicate used to reduce shrinkage in clay bodies and glazes during firing. Can aid in the fast firing of clay bodies and can be employed to replace silica and whiting.
C$9.40
Dolomite is a type of milled limestone that is a useful source of both calcium and magnesium in ceramic glazes.
C$7.00
Bentonite is a fine powder that is a grey-tan color. As typical for ceramic use, this is a sodium bentonite and is a common additive to both glaze and clay. Use in small percentages to aid clay body plasticity and glaze suspension.
C$9.85
Gillespie Borate is a blended borate material designed for use in glazes to replace Gerstley Borate. It has been on the market for over 20 years.
C$13.95
In ceramics, Manganese Granular is used primarily in clays and glazes to achieve fired speckle (including the brick industry). This is the same material as manganese dioxide powder, it is simply not ground to a fine powder.
C$9.90
Fabi Talc is both white in it’s raw state, and in it’s fired colour. Talc is an hydrated magnesium silicate, its crystals are thin and lamellar forming. Talc can be found in various grades, different by purity, colour and lamellarity.
C$13.30
Soda Ash (Sodium Carbonate), a fine granular material, is an active flux and also serves an important function as a deflocculant used to thin slips and slurries. It increases strength and workability and reduces shrinkage.
C$9.35
Granular Ilmenite is an iron titanium oxide mineral and can be used in small amounts to produce dark brown specks in clay bodies and certain specialized glazes.
C$8.45
Barnard Slip has historically been used by potters as a source of iron in dark firing glazes. Also referred to as Blackbird Slip, Banard Clay.
C$15.45
Alumina Hydrate is a fine granular white powder that remains in suspension better in glaze slurries and has better adhesive qualities than Alumina Calcined. Used in glazes to increase hardness, aid stabilization and help resist crazing.
C$14.50
Feldspar Potash (Custer) is one of the primary feldspars used in ceramics. Mahavir has been found to be a good substitute for Custer, however, as with any raw material change in a recipe, please test first.
C$8.40
This is a ceramic grade calcined Rutile, typically used when called for in glaze recipes. Rutile, a tan colourant containing a small amount of iron, is a natural source of titanium dioxide used in glazes.
C$18.90
Hydro-Stone® Gypsum Cement is especially suitable where high strength and resistance to water absorption are necessary. It is ideal for applications in both the tooling & prototyping and art & statuary categories.
C$50.00
Cornwall Stone is a low iron feldspar material used primarily as a flux in clay bodies and glazes. It is popular in engobes for its adhesive power during and after firing and in glazes for its low shrinkage and minimal contribution to defects.
C$19.68
Silica (Flint) 200 Mesh is a purified version of this much used material of glaze and claybody formulation. In clay and glazes, Flint provides the melting, or glassifying agents in a claybody that allow the material to fuse together.
C$9.35
Bone Ash (TriCalcium Phosphate) is source of calcium and phosphate traditionally used in bone china for translucency and lowering the maturing temperature.
C$13.55
Veegum, or VeeGum T (or VGT) is not a 'gum', rather it is a refined fine particle mineral called 'smectite'. In glazes VGT is used as an in-mix suspending agent and surface hardener. Also suitable for use as a spray-on surface hardener before decorating.
C$45.00
Gum CMC #7 Powder (Carboxy/Methyl Cellulose) is an organic cellulose gum which functions as a thickener, binder, and suspending agent in glazes.
C$29.75
