Shop tips for Ceramic workµMagic Water¶ Recipes for the µArt Village¶
µMagic waterµ is used when scoring to join two pieces of clay worktogether. It¶s stronger than slip because the mixture of sodium silicate andsodium carbonate forces the molecules in the separate pieces to realignthemselves, creating an interlocking bond.µMagic waterµ, (or µmagic clayµ), is a deflocculating item, A thinning agentused to reduce viscosity or preventflocculation; incorrectly called a "dispersant." Most deflocculants are low-molecular weight anionic polymers that netneutralize positive charges on clay edges.) What, you didn¶t know wet clay had sharpedges? It does now« (grin)Each of these recipes uses the same ingredients, but they are just mixedin different proportions. Sodium Silicate is sometimes called "egg keep" or "water glass", and is found in pottery supply houses, or in drugstores. Noticethat each µrecipe¶ is much the same«
