In Topic: ^6 Copper Red Glaze Oxidation

24 November 2014 - 09:31 AM

John Britt's new book on Mid-fire Glazes has five artificial copper red recipes, using silicone carbide (600 mesh).

Tom Turner has done leading work in this area. http://www.tomturner...perRed_35DE.pdf

 

Turner's look great, but he's firing to cone 9.

Since they are cast pieces, it may work if you wet them a bit and use more casting slip to join them. Typically, porcelain would not do well joining dry pieces.

Adding lots of iron oxide vs. a small percentage of cobalt means you'll have more dry material in the batch, and therefore will need more water. Plus red iron oxide tends to be less pure than other oxides, and has a measurable percentage of clay in it, which will take in more water.
