Shades of Grey (very tiny bit of grey, but could not resist the name) is hand blended glass frit with a CoE of 91-96, which is suitable for CoE 90 and 104 glass when using about 5%. I work mainly with base glass CoE 104 and generally only use frit with a CoE 91-96 because of its great color saturation. This listing is for a resealable bag of 25g.
The picture of the bead set is just to show an example of what Shades of Grey frit blend can look like; I have used only a little of the frit blend with some underlying purple glass to give this effect. These beads are not included in the listing.
I use premium glass including Reichenbach, Gaffer, Kugler and Effettre to make my frit blends. Generally they are made from size K1, this can very in size by manufacturer. To be a little different, some of my frit blends are made from various grain sizes, this adds special character, but when the grain size varies the frit needs to be mixed well before use.
When taking photographs of my beads I aim to capture true colors; however, at times it can be difficult to capture exact colors.
Thank you for looking; if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
There are so many different combinations of package size, weight range etc. it is difficult to get the postage right, but if you end up paying excessively more than the postage and packaging costs, then I will refund the difference. Please note that the price is for shipping and packaging.

The glass frit in my Etsy shop is for lampwork, flamework and bead making use, to be used as a design feature on beads and buttons etc. The frit can also be used in glass fusing, glass blowing and some customers have successfully used it with pottery, ceramics and enamel work. The frit is made from glass and should be kept away for children. When using glass frit, it is important to wear a mask as the dust produced may be potentially dangerous when inhaled. The frit may be a different CoE from the base glass that you use; it is suitable for use on base glass of 90 - 104 CoE when using approximately 5%. When using the frit with glass of a CoE 94-96, any amount can be used. An important tip is to make a test bead to ensure there are not incompatibility issues.
