MAJOLICA: Colors (a)
Colors: in ceramics the colors can be prepared and fired in many different ways and temperatures. They all have to be mixed or used with glaze, which vitrifies and makes the clay or bisque non porous and decorates it. Remember that colors with the same name but made by different firms are always different. When buying a new color, get a sample and test it.
The photos show 20 different colors.
The following are labled Name-Colors-Codes
Black = 1 black (Cr-Co-Ni-Mn-Fe) / Blue =1 blue cobalt (Si-Co-P) + 0,25 black (Cr-Co-Ni-Mn-Fe)
Blue dark = 1 blue cobalt (Si-Co-P) + 0,50-black (Cr-Co-Ni-Mn-Fe) / Blue Turquoise = 1 blue turquoise (Si-Zr-V)
Brown-red = 1 brown-red (Zn-Fe-Cr) / Brown dirty = 1 brown (Ti-Sb-Cr) + 0, 25 oxide Manganese (Mn2O3)
Brown dark = 1 brown dark (Cr-Fe-Mn) / Brown strong = 1 brown-red (Zn-Fe-Cr) + 1-brown dark (Cr-Fe-Mn)
Green copper = 1 green copper oxide (Cu O2) / Green dirty = 1 green copper oxide (Cu O2)
Green light = 1 yellow + 0, 25 / Green strong = 1 green strong (Co-Cr)
Red Crimson = 1 red crimson (Sn, Ca, Cr, Si) / Red Strong = 1 red strong (Cd, Se)
Yellow = 1 yellow strong (Zr-Si-Pr) + 0, 33( Pb-Sb-Fe) / Yellow lemon = 1 yellow lemon (Si-Zr-Pr)
Manganese = 1 oxide Manganese (Mn2O3) + 0, 15 red crimson (Sn, Ca, Cr, Si) / Ochre = 1 orange (Pb-Sb-Fe) + Red strong (Cd, Se)
Ochre skin = 1 ochre light (Ti-Sb-Cr) / Purple = 1 red crimson (Sn-Cr)
