Val Cox Frit: Prince of Tides
Man - I just suck at frit. I don't know what it is - but - it just doesn't speak to me.
Not the fault of the frit - mind you. Just me.
Anyhoo - this is a Val Cox frit - Prince of Tides.
The working notes say:
But the frit just over white is quite pretty. I think that violet and the aqua are just too far apart in saturation for my taste.
Trying again - over clear, and mashed. Now this bead actually looks better in the photo than it does in real life - because I got a lot more light into it. In real life - it's pretty dark. But I do like the patterns of the frit better. And it has some nice depth. Maybe if I'd done some raking or twisting?
I think this is probably very nice for some people. It is easy to use.
Not doing it for me, however. Too bad.
