Plainsman M2 (left) vs. Redart (right). These bars are fired cone 04, 02, 2, 3, 4 (top to bottom). Fired color is almost identical. M2 has a little more soluble salts and is more plastic (although still not as plastic as a typical pottery clay). Redart will make a good casting slip which M2 does not deflocculate well.
