Reference Notes
1Can be used as a body stain in porcelain at high temperature. All of the brown colors can be used as ‘body stains’ but will vary in shade considerably depending on the composition of the body and temperature at which it is fired. Firing Temperatures can only be a rough guide. Firing at 2200oF on a slow schedule may give the equivalent maturing as firing at 2300oF on a fast schedule. The cycle, atmosphere and rate of cooling will affect the color.
2Max Temperature 2156oF (std Cone 5)
3Max Temperature 2390oF (std Cone 12)
4Max Temperature 1976oF (std Cone 04) Zinc Oxide influences the color in a glaze more than any other element. Generally, zincless glazes should not contain magnesium oxide. Some colors containing zinc are to be used in a zincless glaze. The zinc in the color is in a combined form and will not harm the color, but free zinc oxide in the glaze can destroy the color.
5Do not use zinc in glaze
6May be used with or without zinc
7Zinc not necessary but gives better results
8Best results with no zinc in glaze Calcium Oxide content as calcium carbonate should be between 12-15% for best color development. Adding the molecular equivalent of calcium oxide with wollastonite, a natural calcium silicate, often gives better uniformity. The increased silica from the wollastonite must be subtracted or the glaze will have a poor surface.
9Glaze must contain 6.7-8.4% calcium oxide
10Use only as a body stain
