Link to LE Thread on Seashell Swirl

Seashell swirl is a light pinky/purpley glass that’s somewhere between transparent and opaque. It reacts around most frit, creating a bit of an outline around the frit. More reaction depending on the frit. I’ve tried a few different ones and gotten some neat results. It also seems to be somewhat reactive with silvered ivory (or at least, it makes a very nice base for it)
