I just got my Iris Gold frit and had a go at playing with it. Not too sure it will work on the HH but I'm game to try! Yesterday, while I was waiting on the mail, I made up a batch of my own reactive frit that showed a lot of promise with silver foil. I added some of the Iris Gold to it and tried it again today -- Can't wait to see what happens with it now!!
I also ordered some Val Cox Bora Bora frit. Man, Does that stuff react with CiM Indian Summer. I am SO excited to see what I get from it.

My Iris gold just looks like baby poop put directly on Lt Brown (Didn't do the stringer thing), but check out what Boro Bora frit i did on CiM Indian Summer!

I finally was able to try this out. I really like the effect.

pic 1 & 2: striking red base
pic 3: striking yellow base
pic 4:cobalt base
pic 5: amethyst base

My beads made on a base of striking red turned out blue and green, not pink like other peeps beads. Anyone know why or what I need to do to get the pinks?

The current challenge ends in two weeks, then we will hopefully get another one going.

These are all soft glass. Some Creation is Messy, some Double Helix from what I remember.
