Kitty litter is not perlite. The clay types probably are the ground up bentonite clay--I haven't used them in years, but I still don't think that they easily make something like a clay slip. This is perlite. http://www.perlite.net/ ............

I'm not sure about the make up of other types of cat litters, probably best to check the label. Bentonite can be very useful as an additive for certain types of mixtures (like paints and plasters), but it expands and contracts massively when it gets wet/dries, so cracking is inevitable if it is a significant part of the mix (a little goes a long ways). I've been using it as an emulsifier in some experiemental floor mixes. The big advantages of cat litter are that it is ground up so it mixes readily, and you can buy small quantities (10 to 50 lbs) at your local grocery store. _________________________________________________________________ Express yourself instantly with MSN Messenger!
