Val Cox Winter Blues Frit

Posted on

This isn’t a new Val Cox blend, but she is now offering it in #0 size (which I think is fairly new!) – anyhow, here are some of my results from testing yet another lovely Val Cox blend. Loving these small grinds that are now available!

This frit (sold by Val Cox) is a “lovely blend of three cool blue opaques.” This frit was very easy to work with, encased beautifully, etched beautifully too, and created some very pretty reactions when combined with silver foil. It made me think more of ocean blues than winter, personally, although I suppose it has a bit of a “minty” feel to it as well. Very fresh!

Val Cox Copper Blue

lcopperblue0pcopperblue_1_grande

This frit is sold by Val Cox. “A classic aqua blue color that’s completely fuss-free. When this is worked normally, you will have a pure blue tone. When it’s combined with silver foil, some copper rimming can appear, hence the name.”
