Flux is described as a substance added to glass, glazes, or vitrifiable bodies, such as porcelain, to lower the fusion point during firing. Fluxes are commonly added to enamel colors to lower their fusion point to slightly below that of the glaze to which they are applied, although some softening of the glaze is essential to bind the enamels to it.
