Dots are a fundamental element of design. In kilnforming, you can incorporate round dots into your work by creating frit balls. These tiny spheres of glass are the result of firing pieces of coarse frit until they are transformed into round, smooth, symmetrical shapes. The resulting frit balls can then be used in future firings.In this lesson, you'll learn how to make your own frit balls. We'll also discuss special firing considerations for different styles of glass, and ideas for using frit balls in a variety of kilnforming applications.
