Cesco - Now made by Walker Ceramics
The ever changing world of ceramics - Jerry Tonkavic of Cesco / Ceramic Supply Company in Sydney decided to retire in 2010 and invited us to continue with the Cesco tradition and continue production of all Cesco Colours and glazes. On top of this Ferro decided to cease production in Australia and import all colours and frits from their manufacturing plants overseas and also invited us to continue their ball milled glaze production for their customers. In May we completed the lease on the factory next door, extended our current glaze room area and commenced preparing to fit in both the Cesco equipment and some ballmills from Ferro. With the changes in Ferro we have also needed to reformulate all the colour and glaze range to suit the new stains and frits.
We are preparing an equivalents chart to make substitution of new frits and colours as painless as possible.
Air hardening clay - no need for firing - Dries Hard under the Australian Sun!!!
We now stock two types of Sun Clay in 3 sizes 2.8kg, 5.6kg and 11.35kg
Self hardening artist clay for school, home, arts and crafts. Safe, multi-purpose and economical. Just like other high quality Walker & Feeneys Clay, Sun Clays are great for modelling, throwing, sculpting and thousands of hobby projects. The cure for shrinking school budgets, Sun Clays self-hardening formula saves the hassle and expense of kiln firing, while producing a finished product which dries leather hard in 24 hours and rock hard within several days (actual drying time varies with temperature, humidity and thickness of clay). Decorate with acrylic paints. Must be sealed with a commercial water sealant to waterproof.
