Hi all,
I have a question about a bag of some mixture/clay/chemical from Westwood
that I was given somewhere along the line. It is hard to read but the
number is WC304 as near as I can make out. It mixes up with water to a
smooth brown slip-like substance and when fired on a raku piece, it looks
much like a smooth clay (terra sig?)

Does anyone have an old catalog with Westwood numbers? I have yet to test
it out at high temp but thought I would ask here in case someone can pull
out a list of Westwood's stuff and clear it up for me more quickly!
