Pate de Verre Test Tile Part 5

Colors to Clear Bullseye Powders 
50/50   Color to Clear
40/60   Color to Clear
30/70   Color to Clear
20/80   Color to Clear
10/90   Color to Clear
5/95     Color to Clear

Colored powders were combined and mixed thoroughly in a lidded container with enough volume of color to use the base colored glass to a percentage of clear as shown above.  Use a N95 respirator when using dry glass, especially powders.  I tend to mix powders outside under cover as fine particles the eye cannot see remain in the air for 8 hours. Once the clear and colored mix is wet using a pate de verre glue. I have track lighting which is how I discovered the finest of particles in the air.  Another reason to wet mop my area after doing art.
