French Grey Pigment stain expands the potter’s palette with unlimited practicability. How it can be applied onto earthenware, greenware or bisque?
FRENCH GREY color powder mixed with water provides the cheapest and the most usual way of applying underglaze decoration. Glaze and body stains are normally used for the preparation of 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 create vivid colors making them excessively cost-effective.
How to use Ceramic BASF pigments of the potter:
French Grey color code BEBFC5 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.
