Frit Painting (Second Fire)

Next major phase in building a frit painting.  I have applied the horizon line trees and the large oak tree in the mid-foreground.  Included is the swing and vines for the front flower beds.  This just went back into the kiln for fire #3 (the large trees were a separate fire).  I used fine frit (color) with a fine frit cap and some medium frit color in transparents and opals to add some early texture.  This will be a contour fuse at a 36 hour fire because of the changes in thickness of the glass.  Keep your fingers crossed that it comes out ok.  If all goes well, we move next to the foreground layer including all of the foliage, fence, garden, etc...
