Hippie Chick is a fun striking frit blend, specifically for borosilicate glass. I carefully weighed, measured and blended this boro frit using Northstar, Glass Alchemy and/or Momka glass. It is entirely unique. Beautiful effects can be obtained either encased with clear or unencased. Hippie Chick is a small sized frit, approximately the size of pretzel salt.

As with all boro glass, flame chemistry can affect the outcome. The pictured beads were made using a Scorpion torch with propane and three Ex-15 oxygen concentrators. If you are using a different torch or oxygen source, your results may be slightly different.

Pictures were taken in natural lighting but as is true with all boro glass, it is best viewed in sunlight to truly see the beauty and depth of the glass. The beads in the first two pictures were made on a base of Northstar Amber Purple and encased with Simax clear glass. The beads in the last picture were made by rolling a rod of GA Amazon Bronze in the Hippie Chick blend, pulling it down and winding it on the mandrel. They were then encased in Simax clear glass. You will receive 2 ounces of Hippie Chick blend in a small plastic jar, along with my tips to obtain the best color strike. You will NOT receive the pictured beads - they are examples only.

Shipping is via USPS mail and I will be happy to ship internationally. Frit is shipped in a plastic jar with a screw-on lid, labelled with the blend name.
