New Smoother Raku/Cone 6 White Clay Body

At L&R Specialities, we have started making a smoother raku clay body that can also be used as a cone 6 white with extra grog. It works great for horsehair, crackles, and coppers when used for raku. Is also great at cone 6 when more tooth and grog is needed for larger pieces. Stop by to check out some sample raku pieces and pick up a couple hundred pounds to take home.
