Showing results for tags 'oxides'.
Afternoon, well it is here in England! I am making some earthenware tags for jars etc. I think I've done a very long convoluted way of doing it but that's why I asking for help. I have stamped the clay with a motif and then bisque fired them, then brushed on oxide wash and wiped off, these were then fired again to 1040°c. The look is very natural and I like it. I was wondering if I can leave them like that or will any toxins in the oxide wash come off as the items will be handled. The wash I used was manganese, I would also like to use other washes/oxides. What would you all suggest?
Hi all, I want to try majolica and have read that frit should be added to oxides and stains but is that always necessary? What would be the outcome if I just mixed it with water and maybe CMC (which I already have) I'm just trying to avoid buying things that are unnecessary. Thanks in advance.
From the album: 2016Made for a friend's 50th birthday. Various 'significant' words & phrases stamped inside and out with different letter styles, highlighted with oxide washes before bisque firing. Dipped in transparent glaze & fired to 1100oC in an electric kiln.
