Frost clay vs other White Clay

I have not yet settled down into one body of clay. I like all of them, porcelain, stoneware, earthenware.  This particular bead is made from a mid-fire clay called "Frost" from Leguna Clay company.  It is very different than the other white clay I use called "B-Mix" which also from Leguna Clay company.  Both of the Pendants I featured in two earlier blog posts this week were each made with the "B-Mix" Leguna Clay.

The Frost clay is has a very different sheen than the B-Mix clay.

If you are trying to match a certain bead with a certain color, it can work, but the clay bodies all have such different qualities it is like mixing two different styles. Sometimes it works, other times it does not.  And of course, please do ask if you have any questions about the clay body of a certain bead.


  1. Of all the beads you make for me...I think my fave is the Taos Red. The Ironstone is great too and tough, the Porcelain is lovely, I love how it peeks through under dark glazes.

  2. The Toas red is so yummy. It 'feels' like porcelain before it is fired. And many times, after it is fired, it feels like porcelain too.

    The ironstone is a beast unto itself and definitely needs taming! ;)
