    Copper Oxide

    4506 Copper Oxide
    (Cupric Oxide)
    Transparent green under normal neutral or oxidising firing conditions except in alkaline
    glazes where turquoise is developed deepening to transparent Persian blue in strongly
    alkaline ones. Under reduction conditions a copper red colour is obtained (sometimes
    referred to as ox blood or sang de-boeuf). Carbonate form is weaker but gives less risk of
    specking.

    Copper Oxide is dark green in its powdered form

    Painted onto clay: Black

    Painted onto biscuit:  Black or green if thin

    Painted onto unfired glaze: Green

    Mixed into glaze: Green

    Reduction firing:  Red
    Please note:  that these are the typical results,but combinations of oxides will produce different results depending upon the relative percentages of each used and the firing conditions in the kiln.  Also the underlying body colour will influence the resulting colour.
