Is Black Oxide The Same As Black Iron Oxide

24 September 2014 - 05:41 AM

Hi all

my local hardware store sells a product called Black Oxide which is used to colour cement.

Has anyone tried this is a glaze recipe?
I dont know the chemical formula as their product website does not give that information, only that it is derived from anthracite and coal. 

So I dont know if it can be used for glaze? Can anyone help?

Copper Phthalocyanine In Glaze

06 November 2013 - 03:09 PM

Hi all.

I am quite new to ceramic glazing- still very much in the experimental stage, always looking for alternative pigments. I recently found in my local hardware store a blue oxide powder used to colour cement,

It is an intense blue pigment which I think is copper phthalocyanine. has anyone out there used this pigment in a glaze. I would love to know as I am looking for another blue oxide other than cobalt oxide which is expensive.

Look forward to some replies.
