Magnetic silly putty was pretty awesome, but it's time to take it to the next level with ferromagnetic fluid! Making your own ferromagnetic fluid (ferrofluid) is super easy, and it uses the same easy to get black iron oxide powder as the magnetic putty. The best thing about ferromagnetic fluid is that there's many ways to make it. Depending what medium you add to the oxide powder it will react differently; a low viscosity medium like water will allow you to play with magnetic fields with…

The surface texture of this vase was hand formed with a porcelain slip, which under stress creates a unique crackle effect that reveals the rich clay below.      Each tree is hand sculpted, attached, undercut and treated with an iron oxide wash to create shadow and depth.

Earth Yellows earth Most earth yellows are iron oxide pigments and many are mustardy in color. Among them are the ochres, Raw Sienna, and Mars Yellow. Naples Yellow, which is lead antimonite when genuine, can also be grouped with the earth yellows. All earth yellows except Mars colors are available in both natural and synthetic varieties; Mars colors are man-made.

used SCM and Randy's Red. I sprayed the SCM on the interior of the bowl and then I dipped the bowl in Randy's Red w/ Spanish RIO. I like to swirl some slip in the bowl right after it's thrown to get some interesting glaze…" Randy's Red: Silica	29.70	kg	 	 Kaolin	5.00	kg	 	 F-4 Feldspar	19.80	kg	 	 Talc	13.90	kg	 	 Gerstley Borate	31.70	kg	 	 Red Iron Oxide	15.00	kg	 	 Bentonite	2.00	kg	 	 	117.10
