Colour

This comes in two forms; solid glass rods or powdered frits. The powders and frits range from fine talc-like powders through to grains similar to sugar up to glass chips the size of raisins. The transparent colours always look dark, where as the opaque colours look the same as the finished colour.




Frit

Clear or opaque colour that is crushed and graded, sizes range from that of talc-like powder through grains the size of sugar to glass chips the size of raisins.
