Default Zephyr frit

I bought a jar of double helix zephyr frit but i cannot figure out how to use it. I put it on black glass and tried striking and reducing. The frit just vanished into the black. Any tips would be welcome.

The main advantage is that it is better quality and less hazy or scummy than other clear frits which are really difficult to use.
Use it over reduced or struck silver glass for interesting effects, or leave raised over bright colors or transparents for an effect similar to a gum drop.

Try rolling another DH glass in Zephyr and slowly melting it in. It’ll give you a spotted look to the glass.

Zephyr, Aether, and their oracle line is WYSIWYG by themselves. When used in addition to other DH, they’ll either be superior to machine pulled mass produced similarities or they may shift certain reactions from silver glass (Aether).
