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 art glass which is crushed, screened, and then packaged in convenient 8.5 oz jars. Use glass frit for your pate de verre and glass casting projects, or add pizazz to your fusing and kiln-formed glass jewelry. Use ming green to add soft subtle color to your next casting project. 96 COE.
This color is a copper-bearing formulation that can be used to create stunning effects when combined with Red Reactive glass and frit by taking advantage of chemistry and heat. As the particles of adjacent glass melt, the elements in Red Reactive glass or frit respond to neighboring glass containing copper and cause a color change where they meet. This reaction appears as a red-tone line or halo that can vary in intensity depending on copper content, temperature and time. Ming Green color typically results in a mild reaction to Red Reactive Transparent glass #X60003, Red Reactive Transparent frit #XF0032, and a mild reaction to Red Reactive Opal glass #X60045, Red Reactive Opal frit #XF0452. Extending the firing time, increasing the processing temperature or adding additional firings can help intensify the reaction created when you create with this glass and Red Reactive.
