This color is very striking. I purchased the size 00 frit and I think next time I will buy rod or powder.
It's not soft or stiff but about similar to our shops clear glass. You can only see the color it's going to be when you take it out of the annealer. This color is SUPER transparent and it takes around 4 -5 rolls to get something with the opacity pictured above. It ranges from a dark blood color and varies in color saturation. I know reds can be tricky, but this is just my experience with this particular color.
All in all the frit produces beautiful deep red colors.
