The way I've done it is simply to use the same clay body or same ^body.
Sieve out all the grog and large particles (I can't remember but I think it
was a 60 mesh sieve) Have the slip to the texture of heavy cream and pour
it over your bisqued piece and your ready to go for your raku firing .
Naturally, you need to dry it and be careful of high wind days as it will
whip it and your design right off the plate. Hope that is what you were
looking for in a "pop -Off" slip,

Use the slip from your original clay body AND add 60 mesh grog?

Dear Rick-- I'm not exactly sure what you're after, but I have had luck with
mixing 50% b-mix with 50% kaolin--although next time ido this process ,I
plan on upping the kaolin. It "popped off " for me but not as well as I
would've liked. Give it a try--good luck. pamalab

Wrong, Make a slip from your original clay body. Sieve out all grog to make
it smooth since you will be etching drawings in this slip and large particles
will spoil your design.
Hope that helps.
