Red Iron Oxide Added To Clay?

Recommended Posts

Hey all,


I heard about people adding RIO to clay a long time ago. I was wondering what percentages of RIO do to the clay. I was thinking about mixing it into some pugged clay to get a more consistent color. Are there any recommendations/concerns that I have to be aware of. The clay that's pugged is like four different clay bodies and is brownish when fired. It's probably around 35% Standard 211 making it brownish, but has other whiter bodies in it making it a bit lighter. I just want to get more consistent color throughout it. 


Any tips or articles I can read?
