Rutile
Rutile
Rutile is used as an ore containing titanium and iron oxide. It gives a weak buff brown tint and is more commonly used to give dramatic texture to a glaze of broken or mottled colour, although it does not give this effect in lead glazes .Excellent for modifying other stains or oxides . Rutile is also widely used in crystalline glazes.
