You don't say where you are located but Highwater Clay makes a very reliable
(by my experience) white Raku Clay.

Good afternoon, list--
I'm looking for a source for a different raku clay than what I've been
using, and I'm sorry, I don't know the brand. It bisque fires to a slightly
pinkish white in the electric kiln we're using, and I have seen a somewhat
more tan color illustrated in one of my pottery books. I'd like to try it
but have no idea what it is or where to get it...

If you do it yourself
you can use Either VC claybody
VC RAKU CLAYBODY\REVISED
BALL CLAY 20
Or the one John Britt sent to the list
Nicholas Bernard's Raku claybody
EPK KAOLIN 300
BALL CLAY (AK) 120
You can change some of the clay to red clay.
I did not find it interesting, defiantly bad for white glaze
You can try this claybody I made with your local earth sieve it to
BALL CLAY (AK) 30
SILICA SAND 20
It works but it is not delicate. It showed good glossy copper glaze.
