Drawing With Frit Powder

I used a 6x6 square of white Opal glass for this experiment. I sifted black powder evenly over the sheet of glass. I used different tools like a toothpick, a small brush, and tweezers to make the sketch. Using my smaller sifter I added some areas with a rusty red powder and added some yellow with tweezers. Cleaned up area with the toothpick and removed some background powders with a brush.

The piece below was done by sifting powdered glass over plastic mesh and plastic cut from a strawberry basket. I used black and yellow Opal powder on white Opal glass. Yellow stringer was used in the corners.

I will probably slump this into a sushi plate or small bowl.
