Sometimes This Craft is Too Much Fun

Sitting around the studio the Other Day, with the spoils of Mikey's loins (The Flowering Lotus Blossom, better known as Zenia to the mailman), looking for something interesting to do, these two people came up with this project.

Starting with a SP209 Ghost White blank stacked on top of the same size Clear (to aid with volume control) Zenia drew this simple design-

we then chose three colours that we thought 
worked well together-

We then took the cutoffs of each colour, crushed them up and sorted them through a set of screens-

then sprinkled the frit in the white open areas-

and after fusing and slumping we ended up with this-

That is so cool. And simple. Great idea for us newbies...

Is that white area just one layer or is it two? If one... how do you prevent a "pull in" deformation at the edge?

The base is 2 x 1/8"- a clear and a SP209 White, which gives enough thickness to overcomer volume control,
