Working with frit
Adding frit to a design with a straw
Working with frit (small broken pieces of glass) can help you to create a wide variety of different designs and effects on your fused glass. But it can sometimes be tricky to get it into the right place and it has a tendency to bounce of the glass tile you are working on.
This video shows how to use a straw to help add small amounts of frit to a design. I have used an old plastic straw but a paper straw would work just as well. Cut the end of the straw at an angle and then scoop up a small amount of frit with it. Use your finger to tap the straw and place the frit where you would most like it!
