A light colour which has some remarkable reactive effects and is always a great background colour. Come and experiment!
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. Also available in a Fine, Medium or Coarse form.
May react with:
Copper, Lead, Silver
Powder frits usually appear much lighter than their fired colour, even when the glass is not a striker. Please see the bottom half of the sheet glass image below for a better idea of the fired colour.
A sulphur glass. May react with gold-bearing lead (1311, 1411, 0301, 0305) and copper (1116, 1408, 1417, 0144, 0145, 0146) glasses to create dark interface (lead sulphide, copper sulphide). Very viscous; will flow later and less than other glasses. Generally more sensitive to heat-history and more likely to show variation in colour after fusing than many opals. When fired on edge, a clear distinction between outside and interior surfaces is commonly seen (a variation used by designers). This glass may become increasingly white with repeated firings. Consider using glass from the same batch for a given project.
