Comments about Amaco No. 15-S Casting Slip:
This is my "go-to" slip, when I need to make a mold of an object, before I alter it to make it mine-I use this slip because it is consistent, does what I need it to do and holds up well. I always know what to expect and am happy with the results when I use this slip
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I like ordering this slip from Blick as it save me a lot of time and money. I order the convenient 1 gallon size because it is easy to handle and I can get free shipping by just ordering a few bottles of glaze along with it
I order a lot from Black..great prices & can get free shipping
I would never buy this product again
from Burlington WI.
After using this product for 3 years, I went from 100 % success 3 years ago to 50% success rate last year to 30% success rate this year. I barely got my order complete. I poured 30 molds and had over 20 crack. I spoke to the technician who did not have an adequate soolution.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I received this slip very quickly and have started to learn how to pour molds with it. So far, so good!
I would purchase anything from this site and not worry.

There isn't anything they i can say that would make it sound any better. I really like the Slip, I get it within 3 days of ordering it and it's ready to use.
Does not pour like a liquid. Is more like thick paste.
from New Hampshire
I am including other reviews to emphasis the point that Amaco's non-toxic Casting Slip is NOT ready to pour into plaster molds. The problem is that it is the consistency of thick paste and does not pour like a liquid at all as advertised. So no, I am not happy with my purchase, will not purchase again nor recommend this product.Comments about Amaco No. 15-S Casting Slip:Unless you know how to use a deflocculant, this slip is unusable. The last 6 I purchased came so thick, my spoon stood straight up in the bottle. (See the photo) I have spoken directly to Amaco and they sent me some slip for free along with directions on using a deflocculant to thin the slip out... When I first started to purchase this slip it was perfect right out of the bottle, now it is unusable. The VP I spoke with told me this slip is actually made for them by another company. The red slip is made by Amaco, But I dislike using the red as it stains everything. Comments about Amaco No. 15-S Casting Slip:total sludge.. not usable at all without buying more stuff to try and thin it out enough to hopefully get some use out of it,

Casting slip cracking
By Woodlawn pottery
from Burlington, wi.
I have used the casting slip in the past year without problems. This time, I had almost 50 percent had cracks. I know that the viscosity was right on the number because I mixed and checked it first. There was a problem with the low fire talc slip. I tried the porcelain slip but did not have cracking. However, that slip was not forgiving when I went to trim. I am a professional. I only used your slip caste twice. The first time was not a problem. I will look at other sources next time, since I had a short time to finish my order.
