Frit ... Paddle? Tray? from CG Bead Rollers
As you may know, I really like to be able to see the when the tool hits the bead, so to speak, so I really enjoyed making some frit beads with this. And if you've been reading my blog for any length of time, you know I am NOT a big frit person. Me and frit - not so much. However, this tool is pretty cool and it has the nice benefit that when you pick it up, you can give it a little shimmy and flatten the frit out to a nice, even layer.
Maybe that is why it was working well for me? Generally, my approach to frit is to use the tray as seen below, with the frit piled up in a huge drift.
Hmmm. Something to think about.
