hey stella, i really like backing it with ga peacock, black, or any kind of white.
if u wanna do an easy quick pendant, make a clear maria off some 10-16 mil rod of clear, and then while u still have that base heat (right after u mash it) flash it in the flame and then mash it again on some ns-14 irrid frit. then u can just heat the shoulder until it melts the frit in. sometimes i back it with clear, then back it with either peacock (favorite), black, or white.
for white i really like bright white from borostix.
i like adding the clear lens at the back cus it makes the imploded frit hang above the backing. just keep a nice oxy flame on it.
i also like backing pendants with irrid.

oh yea and glasstronics green is great, i use it inside out and deeply encased, no checking. i have imploded it really deeply and bench cooled it without any problems, and also have garaged it for long periods of time without a problem.

My frogs are brass...I guess you would have to be really slow to melt it. I know they make them out of a base metal combo I suspect that that might cause issues. I've never had any residue. Just incase there are some folks who are having to watch pennies. The vin pin is realy cool though

I know this is an old thread, but I just found it and wanted to say thanks for the great tutorials! Before finding this I was thinking of ways to make a butterfly... the tutorial's approach was completely different than what I came up with. I tried my way and am excited to now go and try that tutorial along with some of the others!

Wow, what a great thread. I have just gotten back into glass and boro was my background. There are so many cool things to try in here. I can't wait to get in front of the torch. I think it would be cool to see anything anyone has made from these tutorials. I'm going to try some this week.

I like NS green exotic frit with GA Tequila sunrise and/or Momka Exotic Citrus Grapefruit. The leaf is one of the GA Tequila mixers and NS Aurora Frit. Of course clear frit over any amber purple.
There is a "recipe" thread here some place. I'll bump it if I find it.

There are some cool frits from Venerable bead and Dragonfly Glass looks like they have some nice boro frits but I haven't tried any yet.

Hope it is ok to post that here.

Is there anything like this for Northstar? I've preferred them to GA thus far in my 7-8 months of boro experience.

Bakerman44, Have you checked out the "Working our color" link on the northstar site? http://www.northstarglass.com/
That will get you some of what you are looking for.
