An opaque and glossy shade. Although termed an opal due to its almost total lack of light transmission, this is (in terms of its composition) actually a transparent glass.

Bullseye frit is made from crushed, screened and magnetically cleaned Bullseye Compatible sheet glass. Available in a huge variety of colours, frit gives the opportunity to add a unique element to your glass work. Frits are extremely versatile and can be used in kilnforming, including glass sketch and painting with light techniques, as well as in torch working and blowing, to create colours and patterns on surfaces. Also available in a Fine, Medium or Coarse form.  

Example piece using powders, by Megan O'Hara:

Cold characteristics: 

Powder frits usually appear much lighter than their fired colour, even when the glass is not a striker. Please see the bottom half of the sheet glass image below for a better idea of the fired colour.

Working notes: 

Low viscosity. Will flow sooner and more than other glasses. In very thin sections the colour may vary from reddish/grey to bluish/grey.

Looking for inspiration? Take a look at how other artists have used powders in their work in these videos.

All our glass is COE90, Bullseye Glass compatible and suitable for warm glass applications such as glass fusing, glass casting and glass slumping (unless otherwise stated in the description).

I was very pleased with my first use of this powder as I used it on a white opal base and stamped an image on it and covered with this colour. The result was very good and gave the detail I wanted.
