Raku Mood






I have been on a raku kick the past few days! When you use this raku frit (it's really called iris orange), and you use a press or a roller, you can get the pretty blues, greens and purples instead of just the browns that you frequently see. Of course, this is dependent on the base glass as well; sometimes raku just wants to be brown on certain colors of glass. But I love using the round roller and some pretty nice raku colors are showing through! And I was in a bit of a beachy mood too! All are listed in my SueBeads etsy store now!
