The red is Scarva’s red prof clay and the white one of their standard Earthstone clays. The Red really gritty and stiff so might leave that for my hand building friend. The white is grittier than I am used to but this is a lantern for outdoors so not worried.
The red is an amazing colour. Almost cherry. Apparently it darkens with firing, but it does look as if it had just left the volcano!
