es: ROJO

Red is a strong color with many tones. There is a large selection of reds used in different types of decoration, which are fired at different temperatures. In the past it always had to be fired at a low temperature, between 700 and 800º C. This meant if working with colors fired at a higher temperature, the piece with red had to be fired a second time at a lower heat. In the last years this has changed, now it can be bought to use at different temperatures.
