Thanks so much for posting. Love you results ... now I need to print out your combos.

I'm lovin both blends of caramel and magic mirror!!

I'll post my pix over clear, white and black (my first blush go to colors for testing). I swirled it and smooshed it ... so mine look alot different!! I love the swirlies normally. But I like the reactions you are getting just as well.

Yummmmmy!!

Forest Glen frit trials, great mixture. Also got some kick ass reds out of My Valentine. going to post a photo reduced to 300 pixels and see how big before i load up several photos the size of postage stamps. ugh, i keep getting bounced off the internet today, hate that. tried to preview post, just going for it.

Hey Susan,

I was just going back through the posts and printing out samples.

I need some dictionary acronym help.

FF = ???
PCS = ???
LPH = Light Purple Haze ???

never heard of either of those which is probably why I couldn't figure out the acronym.

Purple Cream Soda ... that sounds really yummy!!!

I think they were both GA Revolution 33 colors. I've got a crap load of FF but my results are usually less than spectacular with it so it sits unused. Looks like Susan's got the magic touch!

lol sorry for the abbreviations! Those were GA experimentals, tho I'm trying to recall if FF became a regular or not? I'm pretty sure PCS never did, though it seems a lot of people liked it. LPH always surprises me, usually in a good way. I made a set recently and was not expecting what came out of the kiln! This is just a white base, LPH and a little silver creek fine frit, encased. Weird.

Played with some of Laura's Crystal Blue Persuasion blend this past week. Here's a set using NS Blue Moon as the base. Wish the photo could capture the sparkles! Fun blend and I'm anxious to try it on some lighter colors like Blue AP and Crystal Bliss to see how it reacts!

It's a good day in the glassy world when new Magpie frit blends arrive in the mail! Sorry for the picture quality. I had so much fun playing with these, and got some really interesting effects from all of the new blends. Java Junkie and Aurorae are my faves (Aurorae pics not ready yet).

Here's Java Junkie:

Magic Mirror
Amber Purple
Tan silver creek
blue caramel
silver aqua


light purple haze
blue reflection
cloud
funky citrus (exp)
caramel
