Copper Oxide

Copper Oxide

Select Size


A strong flux that will produce fluid glazes. May induce crazing due to thermal expansion. Produces green in most glazes, deeper and richer in lead bearing glazes. In alkaline based glazes the colour tends to blue/turquoise. Reds are achieved under controlled reduction conditions. Can also be induced to produce a copper metal surface on a glaze.Formula: CuO
