Large Shades w/Color Swirl

To create the color swirl effect, the colored glass frit is applied directly to the piece over the opaque background color, rather than to a wrap.  Whereas the wrap stretches the melted colors into that sweeping movement, the directly applied frit initially looks like colored dots. However, once softened, a sort of finger-painting method is used to create movement in those dots with the use of various tools.
