Hey there, can anyone jump in here and tell me the differences of these white clays? I am looking to purchase a white clay for mould walls, mould keys, and pry points on a two piece stone mould for a wed clay sculpt. Will either work? are they just brand names? I can only get my hands on PSH400 & just want to know if it will do the job. Any insight is appreciated! 
Thanks for reading

    Both can be fired, but have different compositions.  The main difference is one has talc, the other does not.

    Info from manufacturers:

    PSH400 White is a smooth, all-purpose talc body modelling clay suitable for throwing and handbuilding applications. PSH400 White Clay fires white at cone 06-04. It has been designed to accept commercial low-fire glazes and provides good workability and drying at a low cost.

    EM100 is a Talc-free white firing clay, smooth, plastic, suitable for throwing and sculpture.
