Using Red Iron Oxide over fired pottery

Recommended Posts

Hi. I'm new to this forum so I've probably repeated my question having asked it in the wrong place!!!

If I apply red iron oxide to an already fired earthenware or stoneware piece do I need to apply a sealant to make it permanent?

I have a pot that has been fired twice. I would like to use red iron oxide to emphasise the textures and designs, but I believe if it applied to m fired pieces it won’t adhere. Rather than have it fired for a third time I wondered if there is a way to seal it once applied.

What are you going to use the pot for? If it is going to be a decorative piece, you could probably spray it with a couple of coats of a clear acrylic. Functional...fuggetaboutit...
