Go buy the blends here – at!

Val Cox First Light

I’ve been away on vacation. Had a wonderful trip to Hornby Island where my husband’s family has a cabin. It’s a tiny little island off of Vancouver Island that takes two ferries to get to.

Val Cox Multicolor Dark Frit

Colour Experiments – Val Cox Dense Black Frit

Colour Experiments

This blend, sold by Val Cox, is a very dense transparent black. “Hard to believe this is a transparent. It appears completely opaque even in small quantities. This is a fun one to play with. Use it to create depth and dramatic effect.”

Colour Experiments – Val Cox Red Violet Frit

Colour experiments

This frit is sold by Val Cox. “A beautiful violet with warm leanings. This color is concentrated so use less to start and add as you go. Red Violet works very well on a base of clear and compliments nicely with pink and aqua tones. Red Violet is in each of […]
