The first type contain metal resinates produced by heating a metallic salt with resin, followed by dissolution in a suitable oil such as lavender oil. O n firing the glaze to 650 to 75OoC, a thin film of metal is deposited on the glaze surface. A typical formula ixCs resin 20 wt% Bi"O3 13 5 30 lavender oil metal oxide 45 where the metal oxide can be any of the transition metal oxides. The second type, which must be fired in reducing atmosphere, contains a mixture of the metallic salt with about three times its weight in clay or ochre, with a binder to hold the metallic film onto the biscuit ware.

For that use, the zircon should remain as a separate crystalline phase.
