Oxide storage

Recommended Posts

Nelly    16

Dear All,

 

I am just unpacking my new box from Tucker's. I asked them to send me an assortment of oxides to use with the two glazes I have chosen.

 

Are there any oxides that must be stored in containers where the light will not get at them or am I fine to put them in small preserve with the name carefully identified?

None that I know of.

Dear Mark,

 

Thanks so much. I will go ahead with my storage plans (i.e., preserve bottles).

Nellie;

You probably want something with a tight fitting lid like those gallon ice cream pails you see every where. I tend to go with plastic containers because of the risk of breakage if they fall off a shelf. I am finding now that plastic degrades over time and becomes brittle. I also like containers that are the same size for some reason, but this is not important.

I like TJR use plastic containers for breakage issues-I use gallon screw top plastic jars but any tight fitting lid container will work

I have had mine for many decades now.Glass is just to risky for my studio.

I would hate to have a jar of 10#s of cobalt oxide break

If you want to play extra safe, just black out the preserve jars with black paint while keeping them properly labelled. I reckon that that way you don't have to spend too much on other storage containers but still get some bit of [rotection from external light
