you are experimenting with unusual techniques, do not attempt to
simply brush on stains mixed with water. They need to be fixed
in a medium such as a slip or glaze which can then be brushed on.)
In the past, stable red stains at high firing temperatures were
unknown to the ceramic industry. This gap was bridged by
Degussa's line of inclusion pigments which are stable up to a firing
temperature of 2372F (1300C) and which are resistant to unfavorable
By using inclusion pigments in glazes, the
following additional advantages can be achieved in comparison to the
traditional cadmium glazes:
Favorable thermal expansion,
sensitivity to contamination during processing,
Low influence of
contamination in the bisque,
Possibility of blending with other
stains, oxides and frits,
Compatibility with other glazes,
possibility with the addition of zinc oxide,
behavior during processing of glaze slurry/slip.
