I think this needed to be added to the frit tutorial. I’ve been thinking about it, and I’m not sure I was quite clear enough before, so here it is, spelled out in the least uncertain of terms:
- More frit than you can possibly imagine is still less than you think.
- Quite possibly it is less than you need.
- Any less, it just won’t be enough, especially for pale shades. It will disappear. Completely.
- So go heavy with it, and the finer the grade, the heavier you need to go.
So for powder, imagine you are trying to murder someone with a sodium overdose and that your frit is the salt; whereas for fine frit, you are merely trying to make them very, very ill.
Coarse frit is much more “wysiwyg”, so you can exercise relative caution.
