Once you’ve mastered the art of making your own texture tiles, you can bump things up by adding frits and powders to your design. Armstrong Glass makes a line of float glass compatible frits and powders called Float Fire that work very well with recycled glass.
Start with your frits:
You’ll need to decide at the start if you will be viewing the final project from through the capping glass, or if you will be flipping it over to view the frit side as the finished side. This will affect how you ‘build’ the frit on the tile. I will be viewing THROUGH the capping glass. So, I’ll build my design from the background to the details.
First, the amber for the chests and bellies. I’m using a fairly loose hand, but you could use a powder sifter and get very fine detail if that’s the way you roll.
Next will be the deer brown and black for the wing and neck feathers. I also cheated and added some yellow for beaks. Artistic allowance is definitely allowed!
And fire to a full fuse:
