Watercolours

I have been playing around with frit (crushed glass) lately, and have discovered a new way to apply it - well, it's new to me anyway.  I am really pleased with the way the beads are turning out - to me they look like tiny floral watercolour washes.

Wonderful beads! I have just recently starting working with frit and I love it! At first I thought I was cheating by using the frit instead of doing my own designs and then I saw how it looked and I was hooked.

Beautiful! I have a lot of frit but alas, torch isn't hooked up and probably WON'T get hooked up until April, when I'm done with shows and what not.

Elizabeth, I'm sorry I don't sell frit. I purchase a lot of mine from "Bead Goodies" in the US.
