Where can I buy uncured ceramic to mold myself?

I want to make a ceramic bowl, to be subsequently painted with a high heat enamel or ceramic paint, but I can’t seem to find where to buy it. Also where could I find the paint to use it with. I want a paint that is relatively high heat/fire resistant as it will be exposed periodically to flames.
I want something that needs to be baked.

You can buy moist clays or slip (if you have a plaster mold for slip casting) at a ceramic supplier — google “ceramic supplier” and your city for a place near you. There also may be art or craft stores near you that will have ceramic moist clays, tools and other supplies. See link #1 for the suppliers I use.

When your bowl is done you can paint it with underglaze colors. I use Amaco velvet underglazes from Bennett Pottery, paint them on the greenware (unfired clay) and then bisque fire. These colors will stay true at low fire until mid-range high fire (cone 6) temperatures. Then I clear glaze them and glaze fire the work. Make sure you buy the right clay body for the temperature that your bowl will be fired to in a kiln.

Your other choice for decorating is to use a glaze, for the appropriate temperature you are firing to.

Hope this helps.
