Our first day using frit and an enameling kiln we worked on creating thin wafers that could go in and out of a preheated kiln in about 10 minutes. When they were cooled each student used and embellished their wafers on a 4 x 4 clear piece of Bullseye glass.
I taught this technique to show how glass moves in such a small volume. The two pieces on top are wafers that I made and I also made the same sifting on a piece of clear and fired that to show the difference. Only in creating a wafer first can you achieve certain effects.
