Nickle Oxide


Nickle Oxide

  • Most often used to modify and soften the color of other metallic oxides and thus small amounts are normally employed.
  • It is not normally used in low fire glazes due to the refractory nature of nickel oxide powder. Glazes that are already matte or immature will thus be made more dry by the addition of nickel.
  • Since nickel is used in smaller amounts, flashing from other glazed ware and the chemistry of the glaze can have an effect on ware color.
