blackbird slip

I have used blackbird slip in this way to make a black slip glaze. I tested
10 - 15 - and 20% additions of whiting. I used the melted blackbird/barnard
slip for the purpose intended. Makes a great black glaze without using
cobalt. Doesn't move or do anything but sit there and be black. I fired to
Cone 9 ox.

I am looking for a few bags of Blackbird (Barnard) slip (NOT the
substitute), if anyone has or knows of some they would be willing to sell.
I am in Pennsylvania.
