I am trying to find a good red clay body recipe to fire to cone 04. I want a
bright orange-red clay body. It is something similar to Aardvark's Mesa Red.
Is there a particuarly good red clay to add to my formula? I have been adding
red art and some red iron oxide to my clay mixture, and the results have been
flat and dull.
