The Glass Diversion Valentine Frit was a lovely blend. It is mostly opaque blend and reacted nicely on many opaque bases. The blend has a range of pink colors that looked especially nice on Opal and New Violet. 

Using clear did not work well because the color wasn’t dense enough, but I did not try it again with more frit to see if the color intensifies. The blend looked good on white, opal yellow, and periwinkle.

All these beads have Valentine Frit on different base glass colors. Cherry Shake, New Violet, Turquoise.

I especially liked the reaction on New Violet, Dark Turquoise, and Cherry Shake? Silver Pink had an interesting reaction. These beads actually remind me of those M&M speckled chocolate eggs you get around Easter.

When the frit is encased, you end with a nice shade of pink. This color reminds me a bit of Paris or Charlotte CIM glass colors. It is a nice color of pink.

This is the same set of frit over additional darker base colors. I went with darker blues, purples, turquoise, and green colors. This frit looks nice over any base color.

This firt is a very fine size, maybe size #0, and so it goes on evenly and does not add a lot to the finished size. There are more reactions over some colors than others with a variety of shades of pink.
