A fun way to add interest and embellish while fusing is by mixing in combinations of stringers, millefiori, confetti and frit.
Stringers are very thin lines or rods of glass almost the size of angel hair pasta, sometimes even smaller. They are available in multiple colors and can be placed in patterns on or between glass, think patchwork, stripes, outlines or borders.
Millefiori are multicolored patterned decorative glass slices usually the thickness of glass rods or a drinking straw. Millefiori usually resemble little glass flowers, stars or pin-wheels and they can be placed between or on top of glass.
Frit is crushed 90 COE glass available in a multi-colored package, I would say frit resembles Pop Rocks or Fruity Pebbles or little dots that can be sprinkled over your glass surface for a neat multi-colored result.
Confetti is available in multi-colored or solid colored packages and as the name implies it’s a little bit confetti-like. It is a very thin/paper-like type of glass that you can layer to form fun random shapes.
When mixed together these embellishments produce a stunning effect.
