These pieces were made with BN EsoCera Slip. The face shape was made with the BN EsoCera Clay. All parts were fired to 1000 C for 1/2 hour.


BN EsoCera Slip is an esoteric ceramic casting slip loaded with BN in order to impart the great properties of BN into a part cast-and-sintered from this slip. Thus, if you are familiar with slip casting ceramics, this slip works identically to normal ceramic slip – casts into plaster molds with good release and shape retention, forming a strong leather-hard body on initial drying and then firing to a strong, well-bonded body.

Key Attributes
  • Safe, water-based, easy to use and cleanup
  • Ready-to-pour (after stirring) into plaster mold for creating specialty shapes
  • Forms Boron Nitride based ceramic shapes after drying and firing
Ideal Use
  • Making your own parts with BN performance
  • For 1000 C upper use temperature in all atmospheres
  • Molten nonferrous-metal-resistant ceramic pieces
