Pure Alberta Slip can be made into a black adding only 20% frit and 3% black stain
|Alberta Slip 1000F Roasted*||33.00||35.5|
|Ferro Frit 3134*||20.00||21.5|
|Mason 6666 Black Stain*||3.00||3.2|
A glossy black. The small amount of frit needed is due to the fact that Alberta slip is a dark burning material already. If it is not black enough, increase the percentage of stain. If you need a glossier surface, increase the frit. If it crazes switch to Ferro Frit 3195. Should be ball milled.
For mixing instructions please see the master recipe, GA6-A.
Roasted Alberta Slip (right) and raw powder (left). These are thin-walled 5 inch cast bowls, each holds about one kg. I hold the kiln at 1000F for 30 minutes. Why do this? Because Alberta Slip is a clay, it shrinks on drying. Roasting eliminates that, a 50:50 raw:roast mix works well for most recipes having high percentages of Alberta Slip. And 1000F? Calcining to 1850F sinters some particles together (creating a gritty material) while 1000F produces a smooth, fluffy powder. Technically, Alberta Slip losses 3% of its weight on roasting so I should use 3% less than a recipe calls for. But I often just swap them gram-for-gram.

Alberta Slip is a substitute for Albany Slip that has gained a life of its own so that there are now many glazes based specifically on it.
