I am looking for a great recipe for flashing slip for woodfiring.
Also, wanted to get some votes on the most translucent yet thow-able
porcelain available on the west coast.

Greetings from over on the other side (of the mountains that is).
We use some here in the woodkiln:
Helmer kaolin 75
Nepheline Syenite 25
For use on bisque, I calcine half of the kaolin.
Some people add a little bentonite and/or soda ash.
Coleman porcelain is a very nice clay. Throws easily, and get's nice
translucency. Good colors in the wood.
