Frits

Lampwork Colour Guide -> Frit Blends

I do a lot of colour testing for Val Cox Frit, so the majority of blends you see here will reflect that. Frit has actually become a major component of my work – I hardly make any beads without it anymore! There are some other great frit-makers out there and you can even try your hand at making your own frit. Some of the really fantastic blends of frit are so fantastic because they actually use furnace glass instead of regular bead-making glass. The colours are much more saturated.

There is another frit-experimenter out there who has extensively tested many different colours and blends. Check out Frit: A Visual Reference.

Where to Buy Glass Frit Blends (These are just a few):

I made a tutorial about using frit. It might give you some tips if you are new to using frit in bead making. Meanwhile, here are the results of my colour experiments with the Val Cox blends.
