Amy Hall, of Two Glassy Ladies in Victoria BC, gives an overview of frit and how it's used in lampworking. Amy shows examples of her beads and demonstrates how to make a "paddle" for a quick way to experiment with different color combinations. Photos of several "winner" and "loser" glass combinations are shown.
Amy demonstrates three classic variations of working with frit: applied on the surface of a bead, encased in clear glass, and combined with silver foil.
Amy demonstrates three additional techniques for working with frit to create swirl beads, sugar beads, and lentil beads utilizing the Zoozii's "spree" (flat sided) lentil press.
