Product Information
Rainbow dichroic coated frit: Coarse size on clear glass. 

Create some brilliant effects by layering in between glass. 

This product is not broken up sheets of glass, but actually coated frit. After extensive research CBS designed a proprietary process that allows the frit to be coated on approximately 80 percent of the surface area of the glass. Due to this high ratio of Coating versus Glass, the Dichroic Frit responds very differently under heating/hotworking conditions - A must try for artists looking for a fresh or different look to their work. Experiment today! 

Also available on black.

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

LIke other users I have found this to be sharp even when superfused on top of the glass and causes monster bubbles and boils when in the middle; this with an enormous bubble squeeze programme and tried with both clear powder and clear fine frit. However. Sifting some powder (any transparent is good) over the dichroic frit on top of the glass seems to have worked well. I was very cautious/frugal with the powder so that I didn't get any surface bubbles. I will reorder when it runs out.

Bought this some time ago and was not happy using it in jewellery. However when I mixed some with clear frit and used it in the icicle mould the effect was very good.

Dead right to say “…the Dichroic Frit responds very differently under heating…” but more detail and advice would be welcome. I am finding it difficult and unrewarding to use.

As another user notes, it does not fuse flat when the frit is on top of the glass – so you end up with a surface that is sparkly (just what you wanted!) but rough, with very sharp un-melted frit points, like incredibly coarse sandpaper (which you might want, but is frequently undesirable).

On the other hand, if you use it between layers of glass it traps air and causes unsightly bubbles. Perhaps a bubble squeeze program might work, but it would take a lot of experimentation to get it right I fear, and you’d be limited to placing the frit near an edge.

I was a bit disappointed with this, I used it sparingly in a few applications but if it is on the surface of anything it leaves very sharp edges and doesn't fuse flat. I haven't tried capping it as I suspect it would end up with a lot of trapped air however, I think it would be great in cast pieces.

4* as yet to use, so cannot say how it works but looks pretty. My frit came in a own label warm glass film type canister. I tipped out my pot and sorted by size. My coarse mix was ~6 pieces of 16~20mm (x 4mm ) , then some 12 - 8 mm x 4mm, This was about half the volume . The rest of the pot was ~5 - 2mm . I have stored as 3 different "sizes" for use later.

This is a truly wonderful Dichoic Frit.

It allows you to add a magnificant amount of 'Woo-Woo- I Want-It' factor, that will make scrap ends 'POP' in a truly majestic fashion.

You may think this is a little bit on the pricey side, BUT, you will soon realize the true magic of this frit, and a little goes a really long way ;) Louise.

This is my second order, I like it so much because it has a lot of fuschia pink which I struggle to find so I love this little pot of gems!

This stuff is absolutely great, they're really chunky pieces and don't just have colour on one side but on multiple sides of the chunks. I really love this product!
