"Toto is a really nice glass to work with - smooth and easy to melt, with no apparent shocking or bubbling. This makes it a fantastic alternative to Effetre Sage Handmade, which is a similar color, but is shocky and can contain bubbles. When first melted, Toto stays light brown/tan and is somewhat muted. After working it for a few minutes, it can strike to a more caramel shade, darkening and warming a bit - especially if you melt other colors on top of it. By itself, as in spacers, it can take awhile to strike." Read more at Kandice's blog.

"Silver glass beads: core of clear, encased in Toto, spiral of silver glass which is reduced and encased in clear. The first bead uses boreas, which has not come out well – it is mostly a greenish brown with only the slightest patch of iridescent purple. The base is visible as a dark brown next to the boreas. The okeanos came out much better and has struck to blue-purples with green at the ends. The Toto shows through as a warmer brown with separation lines where it meets the okeanos."

"Silver foil and Pendragonfyre hand blended frit was layered on CiM’s Toto Ltd Run. The results are beautiful with the micro silver droplets and hues of green, blues and purples creating dragon scales." Read more at Darlene's blog.

"Toto starts out as kind of brownish beige but strikes to a variety of brown and earthy grey shades the longer you work it in the flame. Here you can see a good range of the colours that come from Toto." Read more at Kitzbitz Art Glass' blog.

"Toto is a rich tortoise brown. The glass initially is a bit muted in color, however when flamepolished for an extended period of time, a deep, rich golden-brown emerges. A very desirable color for sculpting or organic forms."
