Looking in the archives I found this reference;

it is exactly what I remember reading in my "Craft and Art of Clay"
I would love for William to give it a try and let us know.

There was an article in CM many, many years ago on pots made with the
inclusion of silicon rubber. When I tried it, I just wedged the windscreen
sealant into the clay. For extruding as in the cake decorating, you'd
probably have to thin the silicon with white spirit/dry cleaning fluid.
Hold your nose!!
