A very unexpected result of the frit bodys, I expected them to melt across the clay object a lot more than to be set in the position I first put them in. This can be interesting for shapes I want to control over the object. The stains I added were not precise, therefore caused a different texture. Because I’m not hugely happy with the result I’ve made new frits and put them in a 1100 and 1280;

They are quite energetic and characteristic, I hope to create livelier, more energetic colours to create a higher level of excitement to myself and the viewer. – synthetic iron oxide and chrome oxide tests
