Bullseye Fuchsia Transparent Coarse Frit.  

Fuchsia is a deep, rich purple pink; more purple than Cranberry Pink and darker and more purple than Light Pink Striker.

This glass style requires a longer initial hold time during firing to reach the target colour - please see the working notes below. 

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.

Contains:

Lead

May React With:

Selenium, Sulphur

Cold characteristics: 

Fine and Medium frits usually appear lighter than their fired colour, even when the glass is not a striker. Coarse frits less so. Please see the bottom half of the sheet glass image below for a better idea of the fired colour (bottom left for transparent colours).

Working notes: 
 

Colour usually deepens on firing. Possible dark interface reaction with selenium and/or sulphur glasses (0137, 1122, 1125,0124, 0125, 1137, 1437). Less viscous (softer) than most other glasses. Some gold-bearing striking glasses, like this one, should be fired with a 2 hour hold at 663°C during the initial stages of the firing cycle. If fired without this hold, they may not strike at all, or they may strike but appear spotty and have a blue-brown cast, as opposed to the desired target colour.  This full-fuse schedule should effectively strike these glasses:

Rate Temp (C) Hold
* 663 2:00
333 810 :10
999 482 **

* The initial rate of heat is not a critical factor in successfully striking gold-bearing glasses. Choose an initial rate of heat appropriate to the scale and design of the project that you are firing.

** Remainder of cycle depends on the thickness of the piece. Consult the Bullseye Annealing Chart. For colour-sensitive projects, we recommend testing the cycle you plan to use by fusing a small sample of a similar setup in the same kiln as the project to best predict final colour results.
