Fusing With Frit Glass Powder

Frit glass powders come in a rainbow of colors to choose from. Any size of compatible glass frit will work. The outcome will be different depending on the size and combination you use to mix with the frit.

Before you mix your colors, you will want to do a color test first. Mixing colors can sometimes turn to mud on your finished piece, so test first.

When fusing with frit glass powders, they can also be used dry. You can use stencils to apply the frit glass powder.

This method can be a little tricky, since having to lift the stencil can be difficult and messy. If you do try to use stencils with your frit glass powders, try using a quick spray of a pump bottle hairspray to keep your powders where you want them.

When applying only dry powders, be sure to wet pack. You can sprinkle it on with your finger tips or load a decorator with the powder and apply.

Once you have the powder in the area that you want, mist the finished piece with thinned glue (Elmer’s). Now push gently down on the design so that it bonds. Otherwise the powders ball up into the center during fusing, unless you want this effect in your fusing project.
