Frit tinting is a technique for creating specific color blends by adding colored glass powder to Clear frit. It broadens the palette available to you, making possible colors that are often difficult to achieve in kilncasting, such as red, yellow, or orange.

In this lesson, you'll learn the fundamentals of frit tinting. You'll also learn how to create test wedges that will allow you to manipulate color saturation and translucence with predictable results. Finally, we'll apply frit tinting in a finished piece.
