Wop-bop-a-loom-a-blop-bam -boom. Tutti frutti, aw rutti, ...
And, in the spirit of that, I would have to say, this frit rocks!
It is a darker, and more pink than purple frit than the recently reviewed Mood Swings. (Tutti Frutti on the left, Mood Swings on the right.)
The Val Cox site says this:
A classic favorite of five transparents in pink and gold tones. Fuss free and wonderful with silver foil. Especially nice on a clear or pale base or a non-reactive white or pink.
Avoid Moretti Ivory with this blend, the base is too reactive and the frit colors will appear muddy.
You know, I really should read these before I use the frit. But where's the fun in that?
Here we have Tutti Frutti, on clear. I liked it so much, I made another.
And the second one. Finally taking my own advice, I started making these beads bigger - so there was more room for the excessive amount of frit that I was going to use anyway.
This is the ol' dip-n-wind technique.
And this is the disk-frit-encase-distort classic.
Eeehyuk. No kidding it over reacts with Ivory. This would be a swing and a miss.
Ooops - transparents on black. Seldom successful.
This is on Double Helix Psyche. It looked pretty cool in the flame, but realistically - it's too dark.
And, again, on Psyche - with the ends reduced this time. Again, realistically, too dark to really work.
Overall - Really liked Tutti Frutti. Glad I got a jar of this.
