Hi All. This is my 1st attempt to work with this frit, I was a frit virgin, lol. I really like them. I used size 2 raku frit and worked with a o2 rich flame, then right into the kiln. Have a great Day! Dawn

Hi, I just made a basic black bead (I'm on a minor/nat gass/o2 cont) regular heat. I then rolled hot bead into 8 to 10 pieces of #2 Raku frit. I melted in the frit pretty far out in the flame. Brought it to a nice red glow and then flatened with my marvler. I then turned down the Nat. Gas. and then took the chill marks off. I hope this makes sense! Dawn

Hi, I am using a Minor torch, Natural Gas with an concentrator. I took the pictures in direct sunlight. They are a beautiful blue in the sun but are a bit darker indoors, Dawn

It is a COE 96 frit (Reichenbach #108) called Iris Orange by the manufacturer. It reacts and makes the beautiful different colors when heat/cold is manipulated and it is worked in an oxygenated flame. HTH

You can use it sparingly on Moretti--I'll roll a hot bead in it with no problems. You wouldn't want layer after layer, or a real large amount encased or swirled in. For that, you'd need either Uroboro's System 96 or Gaffer cane, or anything else with a COE of 96.

Jamn!
