My experiment with Sedona Surprise from Glass Diversions turned into a quaint little heart. But, of course, that wasn’t until I made an ugly chubby flat bicone shaped blob. I know not to use frit on coral and orange, but I was hoping that the light version of red roof tile wouldn’t fail me. I was wrong. Oh well. I am quite pleased with the heart so that made up for the wasted time and effort.

Meet Cotton Candy. Its a frit blend from Glass Diversions. I love the cheerful and festive feel of this blend over effetre light turquoise. Its another no fuss blend that I’m sure will be a bonus to any lampworkers stash! Playful, bright, and easy going. That’s what I think. I made these up in a freeform mini focal set. Some of the spacers have been wrapped in a special frit stringer – the same one used for the little dots on the bigger beads.
