This week I have been playing with a frit blend by Val Cox called Gold Coast. It is “A complex merging of soft and defined aqua tones, both transparent and opaque, paired with a beautifully reactive opaque, Chalcedony, further punctuated with a rich, pure gold stone.” I had some great results from this blend. (For those who aren't glassworkers, frit is ground up glass that comes in different colour blends. All of the beads shown after the cut were made by me in a torch, all using the same frit blend but on different bases to produce very different results!)
Frit swirled in clear glass, then rolled in more frit.
