Amaco No. 480 Buff Stoneware Clay

Excellent for throwing, hand-modeling, and casting, Amaco No. 480 is a warm buff color peppered with dark specks when fired to Cone 5–6. At lower temperatures, it is somewhat lighter and less vitreous. The absence of grog gives this clay a smooth surface with superior plasticity.

Transparent and light matte glazes allow the dark specks to show, creating a peppered effect. Partial glazing and slip trailing also create interesting results.

Bisque fire to Cone 04 (1971°F, 1077°C). At the recommended glaze firing of Cone 5 (2205°F), shrinkage is 10.6% and absorption is 5.2%. At Cone 10 (2381°F), shrinkage is 10.8% and absorption is 1.9%.

A 50 lb carton consists of two 25 lb bricks, each in a poly storage bag, so any amount can be used as required and the rest stored for future use.

Note — This clay is AP non-toxic when moist.

Note — Any combination of clay, plaster, sand, and molding material totaling 50 lbs or more does not qualify for our free shipping offer.
