What Colour shade is ivory? Is ivory grey or white? Is ivory more white or yellow? Is the Colour like an elephant's tooth
IVORY color powder mixed with water provides the cheapest and the most usual way of applying underglaze decoration. Glaze and body stains are commonly used to prepare colored glazes or colored slips. The pigment is suitable for both operations. You can use effect glazes in any combination with this pigment.
All pigments for ceramics are intermixable so why not get creative and experiment by missing your own completely fresh color. During the firing process, the colors fuse extra vigorously creating purity, intensity, and brilliance. The colors are stronger, therefore, significantly less percentage is needed to produce vivid colors making them excessively cost-effective. The ivory color is like the teeth of certain animals, such as the elephant and the walrus.
How to use Ceramic pigments of the potter:
Ivory color is powder and should be mixed with a suitable medium (water) in the approximate proportions of 2 parts color to 1 part medium. These can be diluted further with water for brush application, immersion, or flooding. After good drying, the products should be glazed with transparent gloss or mat glaze and fire in the kiln.
When using ceramic pigments in glazes, usually in concentrations of 1–10%, a little more care must be taken because some pigment systems react with materials in a glaze.
