Copper Ruby Frit
As I start to learn more about using frit, and really making it do something - I start to have more successes. Imagine! What-a-concept.
Not that I'd call these stunning successes - but I'm starting to get some sense of what is happening, or isn't.
These bead is a white base, with silver foil wrapped on one end, and melted in. Then a Copper Ruby stringer is scribbled on it.
On the silver - it has done some interesting things. Noting that, ...
I tried the frit directly on Aion - a double helix silver colour.
Still too dark - but it looked better hot.
And again, on Aion, and then encased. Hmm - definitely more interesting.
