|FRIT and POWDER MINI TUTORIAL:
Roll the frit carefully onto the hot bead surface, 2 or 3 times, then gently strike it, working cool!. Using only a 'slightly' reducing flame, by turning the oxy down slightly until a SMALL amount of yellow creeps above the flame candles. Now, 'dance' your bead in and out very lightly in the blue tip of the flame, as though you are gently coating the bead with the flame rotating forward and back and hitting all angles of the bead surface. The surface should result in a beautiful metallic gold finish.
