Jellyfish - 3 oz. - Val Cox Frit
This special silver glass blend is nicely reactive, and has many different color possibilities depending on the base glass and the style of working.
Working tips: Nice reactions can be obtained from the heat-cool-&-repeat technique. A more challenging frit, unpredictable color effects. An inner base of black or a dark color, will enhance the etherial qualities of the frit patterns so that blue/violet tones emerge when encased.
PLEASE NOTE: The metal oxides that give furnace glass its intense color also make it more elastic. This means that Val Cox frit is compatible with Moretti/Effetre/Vetrofond (104 COE), Val Cox (96 COE) and Bullseye (90 COE) as long as you use it in moderation. A conservative rule of thumb is 5% of the weight of the bead. Fortunately, since furnace glass colors tend to be intense, a small amount not only works best, it looks best.
