"Soda, Clay and Fire" Gail Nichols
Here is the book by Gail Nichols. She describes the process of mixing the whiting, light soda ash and sodium bicarbonate on page 8 - 11. She says that it is the light soda ash that causes the reaction. The whiting and sodium bicarbonate are not involved. She found this out by leaving them out and only the absence of the light soda ash caused the mixture not to harden.
Clay Club meets at artist studios and other locations throughout Western North Carolina, usually on the second Wednesday of the month. All potters and ceramic artists are welcome! Look for details about the meetings here on the blog or contact Amy Waller at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
