Slip--here's a few glazes to try out

For ^5:

I've run what seems like a few hundred tests with this material. Subbed it
into a lot of old formulas for Albany Slip from the 50's and 60's, old
Carlton Ball and Herb Sanders formulas, and it gives good results. Please
contact me directly if you have any further questions. ---------
