I would be grateful for any advice on using gold pink Frit from FrantzArtGlass. Just arrived and I don't want to waste it! What flame does it like? What Colors is it best on? Thanks in advance

looks nice over silver leaf turning it gold
use a neutral to ox flame
work out in the flame don't over heat.
do not use on ivory

Thanks so much for your advice. Much appreciated. I did some testing today and reduced it and found that it seems to go solid gold. Will be able to look at the beads tomorrow more closely once they have cooled. Is the frit still supposed to look a bit pink or does it just go almost solid gold? Am I overheating it perhaps?
