Glass testing - Bullseye glass and bubbles

Bullseye tints with brass "frit" inclusions. The brass creates bubbles when encased and heated. Only a very little bit of brass is required to get quite large bubbles. The more heat you give the bead the larger the bubbles grow.

Top right - Aqua blue tint
Bottom left - Light leaf green tini
Bottom right - Erbium pink

Bullseye tints with copper oxide powder inclusions. The copper oxide creates bubbles and leaves a blue residue when encased and heated.  This reaction is very difficult to control, less powder is more effective and easier to manage in terms of keeping the bubbles small.
