CiM glass colours to try out with some Zimmermann frit that I bought shortly before production ceased in 2009.
My last combination today is CiM Olive with Z8155 opaque white frit. I chose Olive as my base glass as I wanted something that was not going to react at all strongly with the fine silver foil and still show contrast with the frit should that react. The burnished foil has broken up in the flame to leave little shimmering silver droplets all over the surface of these beads which looks very pretty. I had expected a much stronger reaction between the fine silver and opaque white Zim frit but was pleasantly surprised that the white stayed intense and dense without turning yukky yellow. There is some dark line definition at the edges of the melted frit where the silver concentration is greater due to the spreading action of the frit but on the whole I am really pleased with the results.
