Black Glass

Postby alicearts » Thu Mar 19, 2020 4:05 pm

I’ve been using Bullseye for years. I’ve had varying results with black, making vitrigraph, using stringer and frit. Some black fires with a crisp, sharp edge. Some is fuzzy. I am after the crisp look, not the fuzzy one. Which black glass would you recommend?

In case anyone else has the same question in the future, I'd say to use 0101 stiff black for a crisper finish; its viscosity is more comparable to most other Bullseye glass whereas 0100 black is softer.
