Cobalt Oxide (Pottery Colourant)
Colourants can be added to glazes to get the desired coloured effects. Unlike stains, colourants react differently in each firing. A wide spectrum of colours can be achieved by mixing them with other colourants, opacifiers & stains.
Name: Cobalt Oxide (CoO)
Appearance Colour: Black
Form: Powder, Inorganic Compound
- In Slips: 0.25%-2%
- In Glazes: 0.25%-1%
Output Colour: Shades of vibrant blue. When mixed with magnesium in the proper concentrations, cobalt oxide can produce purples and lavenders. When combined with titanium, greens can be achieved. Cobalt oxide is not as finely powdered as cobalt carbonate, cobalt oxide is more likely to create blue specks
