Silver Nitrate

Alternate Names: AgNO3

Oxide Analysis Formula
Ag2O 68.22% 1.00
LOI31.78%
Oxide Weight 231.74
Formula Weight 339.69

Notes

Silver nitrate is highly soluble and forms Ag+ ions when dissolved in water. This ion transfers to ware as adhered material and when fired and reduced the Ag metal gives a gold sheen.

It is possible to dry blend the nitrate and carbonate forms and putting these into a glaze to get a better gold sheen.

100 grams of Carbonate is equivalent to 123 grams Nitrate.
