CHROMIUM OXIDE – Coloring Oxides
Chromium oxide is toxic and is a high firing pigment that produces opaque green. Oxides are raw pigments from which prepared colors and stains are compounded. However, they can be used alone in all the usual coloring applications in bodies and in under and on-glazes. Their susceptibility to modification by other materials is greater than that of prepared ones, so eccentric effects should be anticipated.
