I finally got a spare minute to post how the firing went!
These are what they looked like before…
And here are the results!
They’re for sale in the Etsy shop.
These were fired to a soft tack. I’m thrilled the frit held its shape so well!
I’m going to do another batch of these, with the following tweaks:
- Slightly larger frit for texture
- Thinner clear cap. The clear I had was super thick, and didn’t fuse into the cap I wanted without requiring a longer/hotter firing, which would kill all the texture I was trying to create with the frit.
- Slumped bail made from clear glass as opposed to using metal bails, so as not to spoil the composition. 🙂
Up next on the agenda: What to do with all the overfired/fail pieces, and more scrap projects.
