These base colors are Black, Jupiter Storm, Green Sage, and Sherwood. I made the decision to stick with base glass colors that I thought looked good with brown.

This frit blend surprised me with lovely reactions over all these base glass colors. This frit did not work as well when encased in glass because sometimes the dark colors take over. I will have to test creating a frit stringer over white see if it does better.
