ALL NEW SIX-COLOR ART GLASS MIX!

60-94 Dark Blue Opal, Aqua Blue, Royal Blue, Yellow-Amber,
and White with Rusty-Red Highlight Lines


Ok, we know we just announced our closing, but we just couldn't resist creating one final hurrah! This all-new six color mix (yes, six!) joins our iconic multi-color hand mixed streaky family led by 65-95 and 60-96. You have to see this one to believe it! 60-94 is a perfect example of how hand-mixing in small sheets can create color puddles, fades, blends, and streaks like no other method. Not formulated for fusing. (Sorry fusers!) To get your hands on this beauty, contact your favorite supplier. Need to find one? Click here

FALL IN LOVE WITH FRIT


WHAT YOU CAN DO WITH F2!

We continue our “Fall in Love with Frit “ series with size F2 Fine (.25mm to .75mm) 
 
Kiln Casting with Pattern Molds
Fine grade F2 frit is a great size for molds that have fine detail, like the Colour de Verre leaf mold featured above. It requires less heat work to conform the smaller particles to the mold’s surface. Using F2 helps you highlight those intricate details with contrasting colors. That's what makes the results so realistic. 
 
With the holidays approaching, it's a great time to stock up on the latest mold designs and get a head start on holiday gifts and décor. Shop our selections here!
 
 
Blending and Shading
Use F2 for fun and dramatic 3 dimensional effects. In general, larger sizes of frit tend to fill cavities with less bubble entrapment, while smaller sizes blend colors creating a smoother color gradation. We recommend developing your own color sample set by blending frits of different colors in fused tiles. Jayne Persico, in her book ‘Glass Kiln Casting with Colour de Verre,’ describes one such process very well. You can achieve colors by blending that we cannot in a single raw glass, and they will be unique to you!

Challenge any of your preconceived notions about glass, color, and technique! Sharpen your focus on design and process to create exquisite landscapes in glass. Each day of this three‐day workshop will begin with a lecture and discussion led by Roger. He’ll demonstrate how he creates color, depth and translucency in his work. In addition, students will get the hands‐on opportunity to create sample pieces of different techniques, illustrating styles Roger uses in his own studio, as part of a small individual project. Students will also benefit from group discussions and guided critique sessions over their samples. This is an ideal class for the intermediate level fuser looking to expand their work into landscape. The prerequisites are either good fusing skills or good painting skills combined with a basic fusing background.
