Magic Water Rocks My World

Magic water is my favorite joining agent for clay attachments.

  
great for handle attachments

"Magic Water" 1 quart recipe 
- 1 quart distilled water
- 2 + 1/4 tsp liquid sodium silicate
- 3/8 (1/4 + 1/8) tsp soda ash
Mix all ingredients in a quart size jar (I use an old Ovaltine container).  Then shake it up!
For my work, magic water and slow drying are the perfect combo for successful attachments.  I use primarily porcelain and smooth stoneware clay.
