Bullseye powder frit samples

My colors for my tiger face came in on friday (while I was on a vacation day of course)  and I brought home last night -
I need to make samples of the colors ranging from 1 layer to 4 layers  to see the depth of color for when I add to my glass

I cut and made clear glass bases and then proceeded to sift one layer - lay a piece of paper over one end - then another layer - moved the  paper down - then another layer etc... you get the drift

normally I would paint  but with frit I need to see the depth of the frit and see what color come from the layers I apply - this could turn out to be a really bad image when I finish but I havnt done it in so long  I must give it a try

I love making samples - so tonight I am going to keep going and do all my bullseye so I have all my samples ready - I will write with my glass ink on each showing the bullseye color and code and refire later



 you can see the different layers in this one

  1. Great samples! Can't wait to see your next step with the tiger piece. I want to try the kitty project first and then try one of Sarah, my white poodle/bichon. She will be a challenge.
