A staple for hot glass artists, you will find frit useful for many applications, including jewelry and casting projects. Frit is made from sheets of Oceanside Compatible art glass which is crushed, screened, and then packaged in convenient 8.5 oz jars. 96 COE. Glass is opaque.
Color shifts upon firing, see image below for example of color full-fused. Colors may vary, depending on firing schedule, rate, atmosphere, and heatwork. For color-sensitive projects, test before use. See additional images for example.
Frit size can be used to control the opacity of your cast project, the larger the grit the better the clarity as showcased in the frit pyramid shown in additional images. Fine and medium frit are excellent for adding small details to your fused project as shown the nature scenes created by artists Melanie Churchill and Julie Haan.
