From left to right: fired examples of Laguna's stock paper clays - Bob's Tile & Sculpture WC952, B-Mix w/Grog paper clay WC886, and Max's paper Clay WC953.
Max's Paper Clay (WC953) Fires gray-stony-white in reduction at cone 10, off white at cone 5 oxidation, and bright white at cone 05 (raku). It is a medium textured, low shrinkage body designed for large-scale hand-built sculpture and tile work where thick cross sections (up to 1 inch) are anticipated. Contains a moderate amount of fine and medium mesh grog.

B-Mix with Grog Paper Clay (WC886) has the plastic nature and glaze friendly creamy color of B-Mix with Grog and all the added qualities of paper clay. It is a great choice for sculptural vessels and has the positive throwing qualities you expect from B-Mix with Grog. Can be fired in a wide range of temperatures from cone 04 to Cone 10.

Bob's Tile and Sculpture Paper Clay (WC952) is a medium coarse clay body which exhibits excellent throwing characteristics. This material pulls up well for tall vertical forms without downward creep. Also throws well horizontally holding near flat cantilever flanges on bowls without slumping. The clay both stretches well on big bellied pots and necks as well as on pinch neck bottles. It should be noted that the fine wood fiber content of this clay makes it necessary to reduce the amount of water added to the clay during throwing. Excessive use of water will negate the forming advantages that the fiber produces in this clay. Bob's is also an excellent sculptural body with remarkable resistance to cracks and warps. It is highly grogged with a toasty color. Fires from cone 04 to cone 6.

If you have not experienced paper clay, you will find these products liberating. If you have purchased other paper clays you will certainly enjoy our prices, expanded selection, and the excellent handling characteristics of these clays. Amazing green strength aids in safe transport of work and reduces breakage of larger pieces. Water transporting fibers make slip joined dry-to-dry additions successful and also aid to reduce warping and cracking of tiles, slabs and during force drying.

Note: Laguna Clays are formulated and categorized to perform as ^06, ^5 and ^10. Most clay can be successfully fired at varying temperatures (1 to 2 cones) above and below their indicated firing ranges. Variables do exist and testing must be done to ensure clay meets an individual’s needs or circumstances.
