-Cadmium oxide by itself does not produce color in a glaze, but when used in combination with selenium it gives red. In combination with sulfur it produces yellow (great care is required to maintain the correct slightly reducing atmosphere during firing for the latter).
Glaze Color - Yellow
Cadmium is blended with uranium to produce yellow optical glass and yellow enamels. For example, a yellow stain for enamels can be made with 12% selenium, 64.5% cadmium sulfide, and 23.5% cadmium oxide.
Glaze Color - Red
Red enamels are made using cadmium-selenium-sulfur mixes because this combination goes into solution readily during the short firing period (copper compounds are too slow to dissolve). Great care is required to maintain the correct slightly reducing atmosphere during firing. Cadmium zirconium encapsulated stains are also an option where cadmium by itself is not practical or workable.

A special class of stains that enable bright and difficult-to-achieve colors in ceramic glazes. They are a recent development in glaze technology. Many companies that hesitated to use these stains in the past now use them in their biggest selling products. These stains can strongly pigment a glaz...
