|Framed UGC NT Samples|
To create a sample tile for each of the 41 UGC NT line, I first cut 82 - 2 inch by 1 inch tiles out of Bullseye Tekta. This size allows for two tiles to be stacked for each color with a line painted on top of the glass, a line between the glass, and a sprinkling of dry powder on top of the glass.

I mixed the powdered UGC enamels in tiny little paint pots. Each container received equal parts UGC Medium and powdered enamel. These little paint pots worked out really well and were very air tight and spill proof.

After letting the UGC dry, the kiln was loaded and the sample tiles were fired to 1450 deg F for 10 minutes. I vented the kiln about 2 inches until it reached 550 deg F and then I closed the lid.
