Add this deep dark blue to your colour palette, perfect for midnight skies, detailing and much more. 

Bullseye frit is made from crushed, screened and magnetically cleaned Bullseye Compatible sheet glass. Available in a huge variety of colours, frit gives the opportunity to add a unique element to your glass work. Frits are extremely versatile and can be used in kilnforming, including glass sketch and painting with light techniques, as well as in torch working and blowing, to create colours and patterns on surfaces.

Cold Characteristics:

Although termed an opal due to its almost total lack of light transmission, this is (in terms of its composition) actually a transparent glass.

Working Notes:

Colour can shift slightly from blue to purple under different light.

Colour appears bluest in small amounts. As is true with many frits & powders, when firing Blue Black accessory glasses on sheet glass, the base colour can impact the overall colour. We’ve noticed that Blue Black is more likely to appear blue when fired on clear and white glasses as well as lighter cool colours. It is more likely to have a black hue when fired over warm colours, even in small amounts.

Hi. I have been using blue black for my vessels that I slump through a mould. I also use a pattern of dense white and French vanilla next to the blue black, butting against it and sometimes overlaying slightly. The firing process is usually fine but sometimes creep away from each other. After slumping I have quite often (but not always) have trouble taking the rims off. The glass is taken off as Amanda Simmons does with a cutter and creating a run around the rim. The glass develops runs down into the vessel and I loose it. This has happened a few times which I'm getting very concerned about as it's getting expensive to loose the glass and the firing. I was wondering if there is a viscosity problem, what should I be aware of please? The blue black is perfect for the work I'm currently engaged with. As I said it only happens sometimes but enough to be getting expensive. Many thanks.

Hello, different colours do have different viscosities this is normal. French vanilla and dense white are relatively stiff colours especially compared to blue black. There is always some risk when removing drop outs from their rims and even Amanda...
