    Here are a few observations on Confetti, a basic decorating technique used by Franz Welz.

    Confetti, spots, frit, ground glass, end of day, spatter, or glass chips are all synonymous- they mean glass pieces added to the base glass or glass ground.

    Confetti can be used in any layer of glass. This means confetti can be incorporated into the base layer, cased decor, surface (smooth) or surface texture (rough); I would call this surface texture frit.

    Confetti can appear like pebbles or jagged spots of glass depending the desired effect. Confetti can be small or large, close together or far apart. Confetti is always a single color of glass even though many colors can be applied at the same time or in different stages.

    Confetti can also be combined with other glass pieces like powders, metallic pieces, canes or cased glass Pieces... the confetti combinations and techniques are endless, here are just a few basic ones.

    1. Mono-color: One color of confetti with colorless or tinted glass

    2. Two color: Two distinct confetti colors used on colorless or tinted glass; colors do not overlap

    3. Bi-color: A single color used over an solid opaque colored glass; the effect is two colored with the base color showing through

    4. Tri-color: Two applied confetti colors over a solid opaque colored glass; the effect is three colors with the base color showing through

    I hope bi-color and two-color is not confusing. When you see two colors it is two colors of confetti, when you see bi-color is is one tango color with one confetti

    P.s. Look forward for posts on other decor elements
