Tag: manganese dioxide

MnO2—flexible colorant—with alkaline fluxes gives purple and red colors—by itself gives soft yellow-brown—with cobalt gives black. Used with iron to color basalt bodies. Concentrations of more than 5% may promote blistering. Toxic in inhalation and ingestion. Fumes from firing are especially toxic. Source: Clay: A Studio Handbook
